DanaD Posted January 3, 2009 Report Share Posted January 3, 2009 Hello. I am in a pickle. I am feeling quite overworked by my schedule. I have posted it below: (just to put things in perspective, I get home from school at 4:30 and my dance studio is 30 minutes away) Monday: Level 2/3 modern, pilates, and level 3/3 ballet all at school. 6:30-8 PM: technique 8-9 PM: pointe Tuesday: Level 2/3 modern, pilates, and level 3/3 ballet (on pointe) all at school. 7:30-9: technique/pointe Wednesday: Level 2/3 modern, pilates, and level 3/3 ballet all at school. 5:30-6:30: rehearsal en pointe 6:30-8: technique class (sometimes on pointe) 8-9: pointe Thursday: Level 2/3 modern, pilates, and level 3/3 ballet (on pointe) all at school. 5:30-7: technique 7-8: pointe 8-9: rehearsal Friday: Level 2/3 modern, pilates, and level 3/3 ballet all at school. Saturday: 9:00-10:30: technique 10:30-12: technique en pointe 12-2: rehearsal My schedule has not varied much outside of school from last year. However, I am so worn out from my classes at school. They are not very hard, and no one has technique in class, but I try my hardest every class that I take. The teachers at school do not correct me on anything. I feel frustrated. I also have Snapping Hip Syndrome, and a torn ligament in my knee. I have doctor's notes about both of these injuries at school, which state I should modify, but the teachers do not allow me to. They say I have too many injuries, and believe I am faking them (they have bluntly stated this to me several times). With them, I am not allowed to modify, it is either do the whole class full out, or don't dance at all. I do not think this would be such as big of an issue as it is if I was not getting graded at school for my performance. I do not know what to do! I would drop a class outside of school, but those are the only classes I get real technique and corrections in. Help? -Dana Quote Link to comment
