marshmallow Posted March 14, 2005 Report Share Posted March 14, 2005 I don't believe that my dance studio is helping me grow as a dancer. I feel like they do not correct dancers on placement and focus more on tricks. There are a few problems. I have gone out to try all the reputable ballet-focused dance studios (because I really only want to take ballet) that my mom is willing to drive me to, but they have been even worse than my current one. I feel as though I have bad placement, but I can't even get into really good ballet schools to help with my placement because the really good schools most likely take the already good students at my age (15). Last year I went to CPYB and I was placed in a high level, but after one of the teachers saw my partnering work on the first day (I had dead shoes, was nervous, my feet hurt and I was tired) she kinda brushed me off as a hopeless case . I am just getting more and more discouraged and I wish I could have a teacher that would focus on me and help me with my placement. My dance teacher does not like me very much, but I don't know what I can do. Quote Link to comment
