rayne Posted September 2, 2008 Report Share Posted September 2, 2008 We have moved around a lot but my daughter has had pretty sold ballet experience for three years. We are in a new area and supposedly chose the best school in the area for ballet pre-professional training. However, they said my daughter needed to work on straightening her back and working on the arch in her foot so they put her in a level II with several 7 and 8 year olds (she is 10), one of them has never had ballet. This class only meets twice a week. My concern is how is she supposed to get better if she does not take class? They said she needed to take the time to correct these things but then gave no suggestions on how to. When I finally asked is there any home exercises she could be doing, they rattled off a few. I just can't help having a nagging feeling that this is not right. She was progressing nicely before this school and has been told many times she has a chance at a professional career in ballet. I have observed the class and it was a good class, but twice a week does not seem enough. So my question is should we be trusting them by keeping her out of class and give them a chance that they know what they are doing or be looking at other studios that will give her more class time? Thanks for any advice, Rayne Quote Link to comment
