Ballet Talk for Dancers

Wow, that's an interesting studio.

Ok, this just makes me laugh.

I take at two studios, a real ballet school, and a school that teaches all types of dance. At the 'less ballet' school, we have a thing called production (Studio Company), where you audition to go to competitions and conventions (I'm on tap).

One of the girls on my team, recently went to a studio which was apparently better. When we saw them dance after us at a festival, we were all appalled. They did nothing but clap, and jump into the splits. There were also several singing numbers. Anyone in this studio hoping to be a dancer had no chance.

 

Any way, heres there schedule, let me point out some stuff for you to laugh about....

These kinds of schools exist all over the country, and probably a lot of the rest of the world too. Ballet is not a main focus, obviously. The students have a lot of fun performing and doing competitions, but I'm afraid that they don't really learn very much in the way of technique in any form of dance. The whole emphasis is on the competitions and recitals. However, the students do learn to perform. :wink: The biggest problem arises when they like ballet and think they have had some training, and then go to a good school and find out they have little to none, and are really complete beginners. Sad. :lol:

Yeah, I know :) My friend goes there, so I decided to question her on her ballet.

 

Me: So how many days a week do you take ballet?

 

Her: Oh just one, but I'll go on pointe soon, which is easier, and then i'll take two.

 

Me: I take six times a week and I'm not even on pointe yet!

 

Her: Really? That must be boring. Ballerinas never really do much, it's all just cute little shows.

 

At this point(e) I wanted to call her a few choise words but I relented, and decided to see where the convorsation weant....

 

Me: So you don't like ballet?

 

Her: Duhhhhhhhh, what, do u like it?

 

Me: I LOVE BALLET B):P:wacko:

I remember when I was in the Air Force on active duty, and some of the guys from the flight line were giving me the standard guff about a man in ballet, so I invited them to come watch class in Miami. They were so astonished at the amount of work that dancers do in a class, that they even forgot that the girls were girls - what they saw were slim football linebackers.

 

"Cripes, man, why do you all put yourself through all that punishment?"

"It's art."

"Well, maybe that, too, but all I saw up front was hard, hard work!"

 

They told the officer in charge of Physical Training, so HE ended up coming to watch class. Here was a really tough old Major who had been in service since before Korea, and it SCARED him!

 

No more guff.

Maddie, you need to read up on "insubstantial posts".

 

What you've just posted above is insubstantial, of the "me too" variety. It looks to me as though you're posting just to increase your post count. Please do not respond to this message.

 

As of now, I'm putting you on notice. Further throwaway posts will be deleted, and your post count decreased two for one for every insubstantial post made from now on. About half of your present total are not admissible. I'll let them stand, but don't do it again! :)

Wow... what would you even learn in a prop class? Like how to pick them out or dance with them??? I don't really see how any of those classes would be worth my money!

Interesting. . .

Just out of curiousity, what is 'music video' dance?

I'm guessing that you would learn how to dance like J Lo ans Brittany Spears :D
