Miss S Posted September 30, 2010 Report Share Posted September 30, 2010 Hello. I'm an adult ballet dancer...barely. I took ballet for three years when I was a little girl, and over 10 years later I have returned. Of course ballet came extremely easy to me when I was younger. Now I am 27, and I am thrilled to finally be doing what I've missed for so long, but I suppose I need some opinions. I dance with girls that are a little more than 10 years younger than me. I started in the teen beginner class for half a season last year. This year the instructor moved me up to an intermediate class. Here's the problem: I can't find the one when the music starts. That makes me forget the combo we were just given, and you can forget about paying attention to form as I'm all nerves thinking of counting music and steps. You would probably be in pain to watch me! I realize my story is not the normal adult ballet dancer story, but does this sound normal to be fighting with? Will the music counts and combo memorization come easier so that I can concentrate on technique? I don't want to hold the class back, but I want to keep trying. I'll mention that the rest of the class doesn't do a whole lot better - some do, but not all. Any thoughts are muchly appreciated! Dancingly to you. Quote Link to comment
