ceecee Posted November 10, 2007 Report Share Posted November 10, 2007 My daughter (just turned 14) is a new student at a well respected pre-pro ballet school. We are not just new to this ballet school, we are new to the ballet "culture" so to speak. My daughter has never even SEEN Nutcracker before, let alone perform in it. She has danced for four years at a modern -focused school. Anyhoo... she has been doing very well at this new school, has been advanced a level from where they initially placed her in September, and has been cast in a demi-solo part in the Nutcracker. The problem is that literally everyone else there ( at least in her level) has been doing this for years, and alot of the choreography isn't actually being taught at the rehearsals, because everyone else already knows it. The director is saying things to DD like "You're the only one doing this incorrectly." DD is a very hard worker and picks things up very quickly, but she is befuddled and I guess it shows. I offered to email the director to remind her of DD's inexperience and ask who she might work with outside of class & rehearsal time to learn the choreography, but DD doesn't want this... I'm not quite sure why... she's not talking. Any guidance? Quote Link to comment
