Andy32 Posted February 11, 2022 Report Share Posted February 11, 2022 Hello, I've been a member of this forum for several years, and have about seven years experience in taking adult classes. I consider myself an intermediate level student. I'm lucky to have a teacher in my town who is focused on adults and incredibly supportive, and who even has adult intensives from time to time. But, I have limited time to make it to the studio each week. Once in a while I can take 2-4 classes a week, but usually it's once in studio and then 2-3 days at home where I do a barre, some center, and work on things like strength and balance. The teacher employs the Vaganova method, and it's great that she is serious about training adults the proper way. But I wonder if that is the best thing for me, since we do very little center work in the few classes I have attended. I realize it is really focused on a solid foundation, but it seems I won't get much better at things like grand allegro, cabrioles or pirouettes unless I get work in somehow, and it seems like an open adult class that has some of "everything" would be better for someone who gets in a real studio once a week on a normal basis. Would Vaganova be too little frequency, and too slow? I have also posed this question to her, but I'm interested in the thoughts of other teachers, or students who have come across a similar situation. Quote Link to comment
