Guest fastfeets Posted October 4, 2002 Report Share Posted October 4, 2002 I finally started classes again after finding a promising studio with people interested in teaching adults. The first week, last week, in fact, I just took the adult beginner class on monday night. I was planning on going wednesday night, too, for the int/adv adult class, but we were in the middle of what was left of a hurricane (today we're in the middle of another remains of hurricane, but i'm going tonight anyway...nyah nyah...heh). So, anyway, last monday I went again, and once again thoroughly enjoyed the class. It's taught be Jerry Noone, formerly of Nashville Ballet and Philidelphia Ballet (i think). He's a spectacular dancer, and a LOT of fun. He makes the classes fun, but oh so complicated. The intermediate classes back in San Fran were still simplistic, and I'm realizing now that they were dismal, too. His int/adv is REALLY technically hard. And he's quick with corrections. I mean quick...and he doesn't just correct, he shows, and moves your body properly if need be..(ex, rond de jambe en l'air, he'll support the leg going 'round to show how it should rotate in the hip...). I've never been so encouraged. But that's not the cool part. Well, it is, but this is even cooler!! There are two adult classes...just two. The levels of ballet are 1-5....and he invited me to attend the Ballet 4 classes! I haven't been heavy into ballet in over a decade!! I could barely turn in the classes I was in for a few months earlier this year, and this guy had me doing double pirouettes with no trouble at all, so I must be in the right place....but to think that he thinks I'm ready to give the upper level ballet class a go....I'm honored, and a little scared. I will give it a try tonight....but I'm excited to have been asked! Wish me strength Sabrina Quote Link to comment
