jimpickles Posted February 10, 2006 Report Share Posted February 10, 2006 I just thought I'd share my enthusiasm for a new class - the sort of discovery that really changes your life (well, not quite, but its really important nevertheless). Recently I moved across the city, and also one class closed, so I looked for a new one near where I live now (as well as driving back for 2 classes at the old place). Though the new class is listed as beginner, the range is enormous, from a few absolute beginners at one end, to 4 or 5 who've been doing it for years, plus one ex-professional from what in my opinion is Australia's top company. We have this very charming very enthusiastic and very young teacher who somehow manages to keep us all happy - an amazing job seeing the range of abilities and experience. How she manages to do it I cant imagine, but I'm getting just the sort of tuition I want, and the best dancers are obviously happy as they've been coming for some time (and clearly, if they find it mortifying being in the same class as absolute beginners, dont mind enough to stop). The ex-professional is wonderful for inspiration, but I have to keep my eyes off her in class, because she adds her own bits and timing. The other experienced ones are lovely crisp dancers and very good to watch. Apparently our teaching is based on the RAD intermediate course (I'm surprised, because I thought this was rather advanced - but the teacher will oviously select where necessary). I've been trying to find what this level involves, but apart from finding listings of books costing many $$$, havent found an outline. If anyone is able to tell me where I can find an outline of what this level requires, so I know what to expect, I'd be very grateful. Many thanks, Jim. Quote Link to comment
