balletpointe Posted June 29, 2008 Report Share Posted June 29, 2008 My daughter over the last month or so has been learning a piece of contemporary ballet choreography that is to be performed next week, this is a group piece which involved a duet that contained lifts, today she learn t that for this part of the dance the girl understudying her is to do this part as she is lighter to lift, she was told that it was nothing to do with her dancing ability. My daughter is conscious of her build as she is slightly broad across her shoulders and slightly bigger than most in her ballet classes I think that this situation will make her even more conscious of this issue. She is mature to realize that in dancing things are always changing but it is hard to handle when it happens to you, the icing on the cake was the other girls attitude to her, now just trying to figure out what to say when she gets home.
