Teacher is the Artistic Director


Recommended Posts

One of my teachers for ballet class is also the Artistic director if the company that our school is affiliated with. She picks our roles. My teacher/Artistic Director hasn't seen me in three months and I have improved a lot. The question is, when I'm in her class should I be dramatic and keep it safe or dull and push myself? Should I act like I'm performing and only do a clean single, or should I act like it is a normal class and push myself to do a double or more turns, even though I might fall down?

In technique class, always push the envelope. Try for better technique, improved positions, better line. Save the drama for mime class.

I guess pushing yourself would be a kind of good thing, just not too extreme! :D If you do do a pirouette and you fell, then carry on the exercise showing you can pirouette without falling! From little_dancer123 x P.s good luck! :thumbsup:
