Guest beckster Posted October 21, 2002 Report Share Posted October 21, 2002 I need tea and sympathy from fellow ballet people, as my friends think my hobby is a joke and the people in my class are too young to understand. I am having dreadful problems learning one of the exercises for my exam next month. Its a Polish character dance (mazurka), and while I don't have problems with the mood or the style of dancing, I just can't get this one exercise straight in my head! I am having extra lessons and I've been going over it in my head and still I can't do it. I think I've given myself a mental block because it's impacting on the rest of the character dances I have to do as well! It's extremely demoralising, when I'm working 10 times harder than everyone else and they can all do it and I can't. I'm so sick of it, I nearly cried in class the other day. I loved character dancing when I started ballet and I know I could do well at it, if only I could get over this hurdle. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? Quote Link to comment
