Team Talk Odette! #180 - Can You Teach Yourself Ballet
October 06, 2014
Hello

Not every dancer who loves ballet is able to go to regular dance classes. Therefore, the question is, can you teach yourself ballet?

There are hundreds of videos, tips and websites online to help you improve your dancing. However, there is nothing more beneficial than taking actual ballet classes. The technique is very specific and you need to be guided through by a ballet teacher.

That's not to say you can't improve by yourself, because you absolutely can. If you get a correction, or finding a certain move difficult, you can practice by yourself so it is better for your next class.

Your teacher will most likely notice your private practicing, even if she doesn't says so.

You can look here at the technical skills you must know for every ballet class -

Have a great week!

Best wishes,

Odette
