Schedule advice


Recommended Posts

From reading this board, I know we are in a common situation. I am looking for some advice to supplement my 11 year old daughter's dance schedule. We are about an hour away from a large, very reputable school. Because of logistics and my daughter's bond with her current school we will not be moving at least for another year. Her classes are taught by a wonderful teacher who has a rich background, I am confident that my daughter is getting correct technique. The problem is the number of classes offered and I need some advice on how to supplement during the school year. My DD attended a SI at Joffrey South, and took additional classes at Orlando Ballet School this summer. For next year her schedule is:

Mon: Ballet and Pointe 4:30 to 6:30

Tues: Jazz and Modern 5:00 to 6:40

Thurs: Ballet 5:20 to 6:40

She could take a ballet class at a lower level and we have the opportunity to do at least one private per week. What do you think?

Summerlake, my problem with current schedule is that she has only two ballet classes a week and is on pointe. She really needs a minimum of 3 technique classes, plus the pointe work. Can you get her to Orlando once a week for now? More often would be better. In fact, certainly by next year, totally there would be best.
