Guest allthatjazz Posted November 9, 2005 Report Share Posted November 9, 2005 Well, I'm not the avid dancer. I've been dancing since the age of 3, but I first joined a ballet studio at age 5. I absolutely adored it, and continued my classes until age 11. Unfortunately, I then gave it up mainly since I was a tad bit chubby and my ballet teacher well, constantly picked on me. Now I realise it was because I had potential, but I didn't understand back then. And I quit. It was a choice that haunted me. I quit right before going on pointe (which my teacher had been hinting at) and I realised what a mistake I made. I was in grade 4 ballet at that time..but I just gave it up. In September however, I realised that I needed to be involved in all arts for the Highschool I'm applying to. (Cawthra Park Secondary School, for their R.A.P [Regional Arts Programme]) Now, I'm a musician at heart, not a dancer but I love dancing...but I definately don't have the enormous talent. In any case, this year I started up with Modern classes after a big discussion with my Ballet teacher. She told me if I was to start Ballet over again, I'd be with 10 year olds, and I wouldn't be able to start pointe because of my absence. I was very dissapointed mainly because I never liked Modern much. In any case, my Modern classes are going pretty well. But I really would like to get back into ballet, but a Teen class isn't for somebody who has a pretty indepth Ballet knowledge already. Any suggestions? I would really appreciate them.
