Guest ana c Posted February 7, 2006 Report Share Posted February 7, 2006 Hello, I have a daughter who is 11 yrs. old and loves ballet. She was asked to take the pe-elementary exam RAD forum. She is a beautiful dancer and has great musicality, drive and potential. However she is growing very fast, (5 ft.5in now) will be 12 in May, and she does have issues with maintaining turnout. She has always had a problem with turnout but is working hard and has greatly improved. I was informed that she may fail the exam due to this issue. Should I reconsider having her take the exam if her teacher is predicting failure? Do the examiners not look at other issues when testing dancers or if turnout is not adequate, is that an automatic criteria for failure inspite of everything else? One of her instructors suggested that I consider giving her Ipecac the am of the exam if she cannot make the corrections before the exam so she won't be devastated. This suggestion is absurd and out of the question for me. Please help! ana c Quote Link to comment
