Skittl1321 Posted January 10, 2006 Report Share Posted January 10, 2006 As many of you know, I am planning on moving in the fall, and will have to leave the most desirable ballet situation I could have dreamed of. I am looking for new schools now, and have emailed several schools in the areas I am looking to move to. One of the schools, which otherwise seems perfect, has one strange thing. The pointe class is BEFORE the technique class for the day. Everything else about this place is conducive to a positive ballet atmosphere. Classes are on sprung marley floors, 3 technique classes a week are required to take pointe, students must take 3 ballet classes a week and be in the Intermediate or above level to take a jazz class, placement is done by ability- not age, they don't sell a certain pointe shoe and make everyone wear it. How much importance should I place on the timing of this pointe class? If everything else seems right, should I just figure out how to warm myself up before class and take the schedule as is, should I stop taking pointe, or should I just continue my search? (In this particular thread, I'm not looking for school suggestions. Just your opinion on criteria for a new school.) Quote Link to comment
