Boots Posted October 11, 2002 Report Share Posted October 11, 2002 I have a question about beats in jumps - when typically are they introduced into the syllabus? We never worked on beats in my beginning classes - understandable, I think, since you're just learning basic steps then. When I started taking advanced beginner the teacher would say "ok - some of you should be doing beats". He would demonstrate if we asked, but I never recall a class where he said, for example, "today we are going work on jeté battu". In my intermediate classes it's the same deal. It's expected that you should be doing (or trying) them. But it really only gets broken down for us if someone asks. So at what point should you be learning the mechanics of beats in jumps? And once you've learned, is it just expected that you always do them? It's something that I would like to spend more time on! Quote Link to comment
