Avalon Posted April 5, 2005 Report Share Posted April 5, 2005 Hi, All, I am having some concerns regarding a particular instructor's approach to pointe training; thus I am gathering some information on others' experiences with taking or with teaching pointe classes for adult students. Specifically, I am wodering whether there are any guidelines, or sound practices, formally stated or not, that studios seem to follow in regards to training adults who are beginning pointe students. Of course, many individual factors impact one's aptitude and rate of progress in pointe work, and certainly these factors will affect to some extent an instructor's method and sequence of training. But the behavior and attitude of this teacher seems concerning to me and I am seeking a frame of reference to understand what is going on. Many thanks. Quote Link to comment
