First ballet class! - May 28th 2011, 04:48 PM

Hi guys
Today I had my first ballet class - it was only half an hour on the barre, but it went really well!
I was so nervous at first, you know, because of meeting new people, having to wear skin tight dance clothes and all that, but I was so happy when I left!
I met the teacher before I went in, she is lovely! It was a relatively small class too, about 10 of us? Anyway, at first it was scary as it was very fast paced and she used all the french names etc, but I got used to it - I suppose its how you learn
After class she came out to find me and my mum, and she thought I was a dancer (not in the professional way, just like, taking lessons I guess) and said I had very good feet - its not every day you get told that She looked very supprised that I wasn't and then someone told me that she's hard to impress.
Everyone was really friendly - my mum had bought some things to read whilst I was in class, but she said she didn't need it because she was talking to everyone. We got some help about which leotard I needed, and shoes and things (I was borrowing a friends) and I got a few smiles from the other girls, and some parents came to talk to me.
I don't feel nervous at all - the thursday class I'm going to as well is apparently a small class of mixed ability - so that should be easy!
So it's not much, but it felt so good to hear those things - just thought I'd share it

Ah im glad you had such a good time!
I know how nerve-racking starting new things can be, i done irish dancing for 6 and a half years from aged 4, and then i went back this january after 3 years out of it, i was terrified!
Good luck with your ballet!

Thankyou!
Do you go to a dance school? You know, those really big ones with exams and things?

I'm glad you had fun!
I did tap, ballet, and jazz dancing for 6 years... Never really talked to anyone in my class. I'm glad that everyone at your studio is so nice. =)

Hey, that's really awesome. I'm glad it went so well for you.
I remember taking dance classes, and remembering how nerve wracking it was the very first class.
It's awesome that your teacher said that to you though! Makes you feel like what you're going is worth while. :]

Awwh yayyy!
It's awesome that you enjoyed it! You'll be a pro in no time

I can't really remember what my first class was like, because I was pretty young... but I remember the first time I got into splits... I was showing everyone what I could do

We have exams, per say. We have like 5-6 lessons a week, and then we have loads and loads of competitions, competitions are held every weekend, and i use to go to them about once a month, maybe more running upto a big competition.
If your interested, this is the trailer for a film being made about the world of irish dancing

Thankyou for all the replies guys,
I've borrowed my friends dance catalogue, I'm getting my own dancewear now! Ah I'm so excited about it, except from the bright turquoise leotard... but I suppose that will push me further so I can get a less-obvious colour

I just watched the trailer, it looks really interesting, I never knew that it was so popular - you're lucky to be able to do it, it looks far too complicated for me I also think that having your teacher in the film/trailer is pretty cool.


Does anyone have any tips on colleges I could go to? I live in essex, england, so if anyone knows any colleges just for ballet, that could be useful, as I'm doing college applications in a few months. If I had to, i'd do a few other dance styles, but I'd rather just focus on ballet.
It sounds really soon for me to say all these things, but I've been wanting to start ballet again for years, but I think I was just too scared to do anything about it.
Could I dance as a career? Or have I started too late?

That sounds awesome
I'm glad your first day went that well..

As for colleges I have no idea:/. And I'm in America...
I think if you worked hard at it you could be a dancer as a career, but it would be some work!
