PSB Ballerina Posted October 9, 2011 Report Share Posted October 9, 2011 (edited) I love to dance and have been dancing since i was three. I do ballet, tap, and contemporary but my real passion is ballet. Recently i auditioned and got a part as party girl in my schools nutcracker performance. I am one of the shorter girls in my dance school and was put as the shorter party girls. My sisters (i am a triplet) are big party girls because they are a lot taller than me. Well there is a small partnering part in the number and five girls partner with four boys (i partner sat. and another girl partners sun.). All of these girls have had partnering experience but me. Since i am short i was put with a nine year old boy. He's not tall and i seem to "tower over" him. I've wanted to partner for the last year now. Even though i'm short and the shorter girls get to partner (because our older boys aren't very tall) i've never partnered before. I want to prove myself ready for partner work but i feel like i won't be good enough. I love to dance but sometimes i feel like i'll never be good enough. Now the teachers are starting to develop favorites which makes things even harder. For example there one girl in my class who is talented but often messes up but the teachers never call her out on it. However, if someone like me messes up i get a lecture. I always go up to the teacher to correct my mistakes and end up getting the step.piece right. My classes are huge and we barely get one on one time with the teachers except the favorites who always are helped and the teacher always comments on them. What would you suggest i do to try and prove myself worthy of partnering? Edited October 9, 2011 by PSB Ballerina Quote Link to comment
