La Fille Mal Gardee for a 15/16 year old?

Hi, I'll be doing my first competition solo this year and was wondering if the Lise variation from La Fille Mal Gardee would be appropriate for someone of my age? Or is this generally an "easier" solo? It's the one that has the running steps across the stage. Thank You!

I think it would be totally appropriate. The variations standard is what you make it, a simple variation done cleanly and with artistry will score better than a complicated variation done badly.

Remember, all variations were staged for professional dancers! Of course it'll be fine for a 15/16 year old :) That being said I wouldn't call it a particularly "easy" variation. It requires a lot of stamina and a strong spot! Good luck
