whatsthepointe Posted September 30, 2008 Report Share Posted September 30, 2008 My ideal classes: 1) are given by a kind but strict teacher - one that really corrects the mistakes but also points out all the good work the students are doing. Reason: we need to improve - there is no improvement without corrections - but there is no need to demoralize us because we do not learn "fast enough". 2) are organized on at least a twice-a-week attendance, but allow for a pay-as-you-go policy. Reason: adult students recover more slowly from injuries... Sometimes we cannot help but skip a class. Or we have a sudden work/family commitment. But there is no way to seriously do ballet on less the two classes a week! 3) are based on a continuous program, which develops over each single term to achieve set goals at the end of the academic year. Reason: we need to work gradually from the basic to more advanced steps. We need teaching, not choreography (at least at the beginning). Having homogeneous levels also helps. 4) are open to expanding our experience by offering pointe, partnering and character classes. It's not a waste to invest on our formation! Sigh...
