Team Talk Odette! #88 - Talk to Your Ballet Teacher
January 28, 2013
Hello

There are a lot of young dancers who have told me they are too afraid to talk to their ballet teacher, or embarrassed to ask questions.

You need to take responsibility yourself, but also don't forget how much your teacher can help bring out the best in your dancing.

Especially when you are at a stage like starting pointe, it is important to communicate with your teacher.

Look here to get extra tips on how you can be ready for pointe -

Pluck up the courage if you need to ask your teacher whether you can start pointe. You can do it!

Best wishes, Odette

P.S - The quote of the day is: "Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself."
