DancingIsMyLife Posted February 5, 2008 Report Share Posted February 5, 2008 I've been at the same dancing school for years and years and years but a couple of years ago our class was divided and our teacher moved half of the class up a grade and left half the class on the same grade. My teacher chose half the people do do their Grade 4 (I wasn't one of them) and left half the people to do it "supposedly next term" We still haven't done the exam and it's been almost two years. The other half of the class (who she moved up) are doing their grade 5 in May! Since she halved us, she's not cared about us and hasn't really taught us much. And then . . . she chose her FAVOURITE people out of the other half of the class to get extra-special training. I asked if there was any possibility I could join, because I love dancing and am considering it as a carrer option, and she said I could join when there was space. 2 new people joined the coaching class a few weeks later so my mum went and asked why I wasn't being allowed to join the coaching class. She said I didn't have "classical ballet shape" . Since then I've lost all my puppy fat (I'm 13 now) and have slimmed down a little through a healthier diet. I've tried everything but it's too late . . . I'm stuck in a class full of terrible dancers who just chat and don't try. I know I'm not a bad dancer because at my other dancing, I'm a favourite and always get good roles. I really want to leave now as my teacher is just destroying my confidence, teaching me nothing and being negative. The only thing is . . . . how do I tell her I want to move to another Dance School . . . . I don't think I can face telling her the truth Any help or suggestions appreciated Quote Link to comment
