Can you please evaluate this schedule?

Thank-you, that's helpful. And reassuring- it seem like answer is always that we need to do more (in everything, not just dance) so it's nice to be told that it's ok to have some down time!

Dear Ms. Leigh,

 

I was hoping you could do us the honor of evaluating dd's ballet schedule, she is recently 14 with the intent to be professional. I have absolutely no reservations about the current schedule, unless of course you do. She takes at least one optional tech class a week, there are likely to be rehearsals in the winter, but I have no idea how many extra hours etc.

 

What else could she be doing to prepare her for a successful career in dance? I see many dk's taking jazz, tap etc. and wonder if there is a need for her to do that as well.

 

Monday - technique 1.5 hours; Pre/var 1 hour: opt tech 1.5 hours

Tuesday - technique 1.5 hours; Pte/var 1.5 hours

Wednesday - technique 1.5 hours; Modern 1.5 hours; opt tech 1.5 hours

Thursday - technique 1.5 hours; Pte/var 1 hour

Friday - technique 1.5 hours; Pte/var 1.25 hours; opt tech 1.5 hours

Saturday - technique 3 hours; Pte/var 1 hour; partnering 1 hour

 

Warm regards,

It's a very good ballet schedule, firedragon, even without any of the optional classes. There is one modern clsss, which is good, but maybe a jazz or contemporary class would be good instead of one of the optional classes.
