  4. I have no experience of the school mentioned above but i would echo, as someone who took up ballet as an adult, that who teaches you can make a massive difference, i've been lucky enough to take classes taught by soem real big names , but that is a side step the the point beign made , i have had things i;ve struggled with formonths and then a coupel of hours with a different teacher and 'boom' sorted ...
