Serendipity Posted July 23, 2008 Report Share Posted July 23, 2008 I'm having a devil of a time with changing old style habits to match my current teacher's. Over the years, I've studied cecchetti (the first style I learned, I think), bournonville (sp?), some vaganova and, more recently, RAD. When I took RAD (in England at the time), it totally messed with my head - literally - and now I can't tell what's correct and what isn't??? Or is it ALL correct and I only have to find out which teacher wants what? It took me all of last year to get rid of the RAD head and do what my teacher wanted. Now I'm back to the RAD head with another teacher, so feel like I'm just rolling it around trying to find the right position.... This year, I'll be taking with 3 different teachers, each with her own style. Am I setting myself up for major confusion??? Anyone have experience of dealing with constantly switching styles/teachers and being able to cope? Any words of advice, apart from having to think a lot harder in class? Quote Link to comment
