lampwick Posted March 29, 2006 Report Share Posted March 29, 2006 I may want to hear some personal anecdotes and get advice about working in a company. I want to ask some questions about learning repertory as an understudy...how to figure out steps and spacing from the sidelines (and the difference it makes when you run it), how this affects my dancing, being thrown into partnering stuff I may not have done before, how to approach AD when I feel like I want to try something and there's an opening, blah blah blah...technical "dance" stuff. I'm fine when I get cast...I learn it and do well...am a hideous understudy (maybe I just hate it)...I guess I need some input. It doesn't fit into the adult boards really, and the career forum seems more about practicalities of the career itself. I'm an apprentice who's sometimes used, gets psyched, then gets ignored. I'm non aggressive and kind of self contained and can "close off" in person, which doesn't help. Need more help than ever from those who've "been there, done that". The AD is good about giving me goals and stuff to work on with my technique...and I ask the dancers questions and communicate, but it's still really REALLY hard...and I like as much input to absorb and think about as I can. Any suggestions about what forum? Thanx Quote Link to comment
