I'm currently en pointe right now. I also have regular classes, but I like pointe a lot more! What does everyone else think?


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

Well I am on flat 'cause i'm not old enough, but my ballet teacher says if I had 'em I would dance great. I usaully take classes that aren't my age (cause I'm pretty tall)and My mom just lies about my age and my ballet teacher might think I need to wait one more year, but really, it's about 2. But then again my ballet teacher says I am good enough to be in the highest level at my academy, so there is a lot of tall people but thank goodness, about three are with me.


Felicity/Rosestar (felicity) | 31 comments Mod
That's interesting Emily. How high are your levels?


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

Well our academy only has up to level 4, so i actually take a 3-4level class. Some people in level 3, 4, or half.And I don't really know if if I in 3, 4 , or 3 and a half. I think I'm mostly in the 4th level. I'll ask my ballet teacher.

My studio goes up to five in most classes. Tap goes to 4, Jazz Teen goes to 6.


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

our studio has everything only up to 4.

Cool. Are the ages divided or is it all based on level of ability.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah... they have age thingies and then there is level thingy.


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Ours is based on age and on ability. there are 3 levels cuz it's a small studio and I"m in the highest level in all of them. Last year I was on the Junior Line cuz there wasn't enough girls to do a Senior Line. This year there will be enough so I'll be on that.

message 14: by Eva (new)

Eva I took a weird method, and I would totally tell you, but i dont know how to spell it. but you had to take a test before you moved up, and these things really put a lot of pressure on you. so you tested about every year, and sometimes you traveled all over the country. I moved before I went en point. or even pre-point. it was because i was so young, though


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)
