Advancing to the next level
I really want to go to the advanced class (the next level up) but i’m NO WHERE near ready. (at least i dont think.) The only thing I think im good at is balancing for a long time and turns. To get to the next level I need to have ALL my splits, a 90 degree+ arabesque, and good pointe work. (at least for ballet) most of these I dont have. I’m mostly concerned about my splits. I have been in this “pre-advanced” class for almost 3 years and I want to move on.
I can TOTALLY take on the jazz and MAYBE modern class but ballet is kinda if-ish. I need to improve. we are having manditory summer classes and I want to do something before them because they are later in the summer and are only a few weeks long. My teacher doesnt ALWAYS notice me and sometimes I try REALLY hard but still nothing. She’s nice and all and most of the students seem to like her alot but I’m kinda like “she’s ok….”. I want to impress my teacher and move on the the next level by the end of the summer. what should I do?
