  1. Considering the (technical) benefits, there are surely classes of very different quality! But most important, in my opinion, is that the students stay motivated in this difficult time! So, if a student enjoys a class, it is always a gain!
  2. Hm- all teachers without experience as professional dancers I ever have tried were not good, but I only noticed when I got to a certain level. As a beginner, I also had the impression they were good... But that doesn´t mean that teachers WITH experience as professionals are automatically good! But both applies not only to online classes, but also to real life classes!
  3. It depends, also professional dancers can be great teachers - or not. Some only focus on themselves, but others are obviously very gifted and inspiring! But most of all, I also liked the teachers from professional schools....
  4. I think it is often a great opportunitiy for the students to work with "big names" and professional programs they don´t have access to locally! I fully agree about the limitations of online classes (space, floor, no body contact with the teacher), but why not taking the chance to work with high level programs? That was the factor that kept my motivation....
  5. Classes for minors always take place in Great Britain, no matter how high the numbers are? Then you are lucky...
  6. For getting cut after the first exercises: I disagree! The first exercises reveal a lot about clean technique. If this is not there, some auditioners send these people out and I can understand this!
  7. @Derin's Mom, can´t she finish her education in Istanbul conservatoire or is it not so good? I will get Grishko 3007 and Dream Pointe 2007 next week to try on! We will see how these fit!
  8. Thank you very much! So you think I shouldn´t order Box 2? Better try my box 3 ones another time? Derin´s Mom, were is your daughter studying now?
  9. @Niko: But you have no explanation for the difference to pointework?
  10. Update: I tried on the Dream Pointe 2007 and I think it would be much better for me as strangely enough, the shank in the demi-pointe area and the box were MUCH softer (in the same shank strength!) than the ones of Dream Pointe. But the shop owner is now ordering Grishko 3007 also for me for comparison, so I haven´t bought it yet! Anyone who wears 3007 here?
  11. @Kate_N Yes, you did jump higher than 25 cm, but you didt stretch your feet and legs - that´s another difference between ballet and sport: If a baketball player hits the basket, nothing else matters, but in ballet, the jump must be according to the rules!
  12. @Niko Kolokythas: Can you tell me something about the difference between jump and pointework? Do jumps require more Type IIX fibres than pointe? Or is it just another coordination? I´m pretty sure there must be a difference - I´m much better at pointework than jumps and I also see on other people that most have one which is better!
  13. To the last point: I fully agree. It is hardly possible to change the genetic body shape!
  14. If you compare ballet to basketball: I have never heard anyone complaining about small people being excluded from a career, so why the complaints about ballet favouring a certain body type?
  15. @Nico: Thank you very much for the link! @dr.dance: I didn´t mean all dancers can jump equally well, I meant they all are able to jump despite having long muscles...
