Guest Chrysocolla Posted January 18, 2008 Report Share Posted January 18, 2008 This year is the second year that I have been in the second highest level in my ballet school. However, pretty much everyone who was in my level last year just got moved up. My teacher suggested that I take one of the higher level classes earlier in the year, but then she decided that since I'm in the company (which is made up of people from the top two levels) I get enough time with more advanced dancers already (though I don't agree...). Recently, she said something that made it sound like I was held back because I wasn't confident enough in class, not because of my technique. But I've gotten really confident lately, especially since the classes I take are quite simple for me by now, and I really really really want to take classes at the higher level, and I feel like I'm not going to improve very much at my current level. Would it be appropriate for me to ask my teacher if I can switch to a higher level class? If so, how do I ask without sounding rude? Thanks!!! Quote Link to comment
