Nicely put! I'm still optimistic that it can be made to work, but sad and frustrated that we have to put our energy into ' making it work', rather than just concentrating on dancing. Hopefully as we get on to the physically more challenging exercises, we can put the practice time to good use. For example, my assembles would benefit from 'a lot' of repetition and I find it hard to practice jumps at home because I worry about the downstairs neighbours and the possibility of the cornice falling off their ceiling - imagine having to explain that to an insurance company! xx

Previously, when we had the full hour, we had time to go over the exercises lots of times AND learn something new each week, but we've literally done the same thing for 3 weeks now and still haven't had enough repetition of the exercises to have learned them.
I'm sure it'll come good in the end, but I'm just not sure how long it's going to take us to complete a grade now. It certainly won't be 5 months like previously. All we can do is see how it goes I guess.


Good luck! Your tutor sounds funny, sorry you don't get much time with him at the moment!
How long have you been practicing ballet for? And if I can so cheeky as to ask, how old were you when you started? It's something I would love to try, and dancer friends have told me I should have trained as I have big feet with high arches (a good thing, apparantly), but I fear I am far too old to start! Thanks!

I don't know what age you are, but you might be too old to be a professional, but you are never too old to do it recreationally. I began at the ripe old age of 37!


Hey, I'm in your class! We are grade 2's, and sorry about making you all split the time

I'm guessing you're the young girl and not the older lady? Split class isn't ideal, but its not your fault. I just wish you guys could have an hour long teaching class they way we used to as you learn so much more. But we'll all get there in the end! Oh and hi!
