Classes for the fall


Recommended Posts

I got my evaluation last week and I have a few things to work on. The good news is I've moved up to Ballet 5 (Intermediate 2 of 3). I had originally planned to take 2 technique classes and a pointe prep class. (Usually pointe prep is done at Ballet 4, but I was unemployed and could not take 3 classes a week.)


The new schedule came out, and it is one of those "mix and match" your classes, with the pre-pro kids required to do all of the classes offered for their level. They promote almost yearly, while the recreational stay in a level for more than a year at the higher levels. (Pre-pro also has seperate classes recreational students cannot attend.) I am a recreational student.


So anyway, they changed the Ballet 5 schedule and there are 2 ballet classes at 4:15 , 1 at 6:15 and 1 Saturday morning. I work until 4:30 weekdays. EEK.


Now my question. Is it at all beneficial for me to take a pointe prep class on a day that I did not have a technique class? Or would it be better to just take 2 technique classes and hold off pointe prep for yet another year?

Skittl, that would have to be up to your teacher, as it concerns how the class is approached. If the class follows a technique class, and does not have a regular barre first, then it's probably not a very good idea. If she does a full barre, and not just pointe exercises, then it might be okay.
