joybelle125 Posted June 26, 2008 Report Share Posted June 26, 2008 Hi everyone, Just wanted to ask if there were any jazz or contemporary dancers out there (although I know that this is a ballet board). So at first, I mostly started taking ballet again pretty seriously b/c I wanted to improve my technique for jazz. However, now that I got into ballet, I am starting to fall in love with it again. So this is my question for all of you guys. I love the styles of jazz and contemporary, but they both really do require a lot of ballet technique. So there are certain jazz and contemporary classes that I have been to and loved, but were fairly difficult for me to follow as they were very advanced (with how fast they were taught and the level of technique required). Of course the best thing would be if these classes were offered at a lower level. However, they're not- and I was wondering what the best thing for me to do in terms of accomplishing my goals of 1) improving technique and 2) really being able to dance these styles. I hate feeling lost in class (like I do in the very advanced jazz and contemporary classes), but should I still stick with it in order to get the genre and the instructor's fast teaching style? Or should I just focus on getting my technique first (by taking a lot of ballet classes), and then going back to the more advanced jazz/contemporary class later? I'm really not sure what I should do - I just want to dance and improve!!! Thanks a lot everyone Quote Link to comment
