ifnotwhynot Posted May 17, 2008 Report Share Posted May 17, 2008 I found a comment about class organisation on another board and as I cannot post there and am keen to explore the topic further I am opening a new thread here. Hope that is OK. It may be better suited elsewhere - please feel free to move. In a response on another thread, a reply stated that "Classes which are not organized well can also bulk muscles by the way they are designed". My interest lies with class organisation in general, although if the knowledge gained can stop the formation of muscle bulk, so much the better! Is there an ideal or preferred structure to a class and what are the possible benefits of following this or, indeed, the problems associated with following a different structure? To put my question into context, my daughter takes two short classes a week with a local teacher and there seems to be very little structure to these at all. I have often wondered if this is to her benefit but have trusted the teacher thus far. Some times a class will focus soley on centre work, other times just on character (national) work or a short classical dance and in others barre work will be covered. Only occasionally are all disciplines covered. Any comments gratefully received! Edited to make less ambiguous! Quote Link to comment
