Alright, I have a question for you all from a friend of mine, and any answers and/or advice would be very much appreciated:

If you are considering a career path in ballet, how old is 'too old'? How long should you have been dancing for? And we both assume that just lessons at a local dance studio wouldn't be enough, and would a national ballet school be the only option? If you are 15-almost-sixteen, is it too late to be accepted, and are you too far behind? She has had a bit of training as a young child, but hasn't danced in years, although she is in very excellent physical shape. Remember, this is for National Ballet Company style of thing.

Thanks a lot, and I (and she) wish you all tons of luck and rhythm.

WOW! nobody has updated in like forever! so, i guess its up to me to make a recent entry :P

Does anybody have any good back strengthening exercises? ive have back pain a lot recently, and i think it might be because my back muscles arent very strong, or are starting to get a lil worn out...regardless, i would like to strengthen them a little :P

Well, goo look with the dance season this year, and everybody have happy holidays! <3

wow, well i havent even posted in about two months, but thats mainly b/c school started and dance...so i really havent had the time to sit down and type out an entire entry...but today is an exception...dance so far is good? i guess...this year our dance teacher was thinking about doing a song that has already been done by our studio b4...mostly everyone was against it b/c we KNO that if we start the dance, that the teacher will prolly just go back to using the old choreography...and our teacher always rips on other studios for repeating dances, and by doing this, it would be hypocritical (sp?)...the whole class voted on doing a new song, and our teacher flipped out and screamed that if we want a new song, then we better find it ON OUR OWN by the next practice, otherwise we were doing this song... i mean, i didnt even really like the song anyways, but w/e...

how does everyone else feel about repeating dances?...im personally against it

So Far. . . [14 Sep 2004|09:18pm]

Well, there havent really been too many entries here lately, i guess since most classes havent started, but i thought i would give a little update on my competition team so far this year :P

Or team dances are doin pretty good...we finished our military today (funk soul brother) and im totally confused about the ending!! our pom (footloose) is about half way finished...its my favorite of our team dances so far...we havent started our funk yet b/c we cant get a hold of our coreographer, so our coaches might have to coreograph that dance too (its hard on them b/c they have 3 elementary dances, 3 intermediate dances, 3 jr. dances, and 3 officer dances to coreograph...then a coupple solos...they try to split it up, but the ocreographer we get is awesome and the greatest guy in the world, so we really want him to do our funk (his specialty dance :P))

In officers, we only have our pom (brittney mix) down really good...actually, 2 people have it down good, and the other 2 and i have about 10-15 more 8 counts to clean (another member and i missed the practice when they learned this dance! :P) our kick (lets get loud...eh, over used salsa...i totally disagreed with this song!) is icky lol...all we can remember is the kick sequences (3 of them), and the last 2 8-counts of the dance...and one member knows absolutely nothing! (she missed the whole practice, i got back in town just in time to learn the whole thing :P) our military is nowhere yet...we were supposed to dance to lala by ashlee simpson, but one particularly annoying person on the officer team refused to dance to ashlee simpson (shes wierd like that...she doenst listen to that kind of music, so she doesnt want to dance to it) so we probably are going to have to use one of my coach's mixes from her college team or college camps she went to over the summer

Sorry for the long post all!!!

hey everyone...i found this community through the search box thingy....and since i love to dance, i thought i would join....my name is beth and i just turned 16 years old...im from michigan and i've been dancing since i was 3.....i take jazz, tap, lyrical, ballet, pointe, and i have taken hip hop and modern b4........monday starts the second week of dance camp at my studio, the pressure is really on now b/c the teachers decide what classes and competition numbers to put u in solely on these two weeks....the first week for me was rocky at points, but i ended it well..., so hopefully this week will be MY week and ill finally start to get some credit (or at least a "good job" once in a while)....well thats about it for now, ... bye bye

I think I posted here couple days ago promoting my layout community. But my friend wanted to help so I just made another one. If you still want layout help, take a look at it. Or take a look at it even if you just want to. Thank you.

[ mood | stressed like crazy!!! ]

Awwe today was my last private Jazz/ballet class! I'm so sad! Now after tomorrow (I have dance from 5-9) I have a three week break. That's when I'm most depressed b/c I can't stand it when I don't have dance class! I love it too much to take a break. Although with my pulled hamstring I need a 4 week break doing nothing but putting ice and a hot towel on it and doing certain stretches. Tomorrow I have to go easy on myself but I don't want to because it'll be my last time dancing for 3 weeks and then going easy again on my first week of dance and with competition try outs coming up at the end of August I have to push myself as much as possible! OMG! I'm freaking out!!!!!!! HELP! lol. <3 Kalani
