Hi Guys!

No real class this week, instead you get a questionnaire that I would LOVE for you to fill out.

1) Describe your type of music. Do you have a favorite song? A favorite artist? A favorite genre? Give me some details...a couple songs you love or a couple artists that you are obsessed with!

2) What do you hope to gain from this class? Why did you sign up for this particular class?

3) How many years of ballet have you taken?

4) Do you have a new exercise/move that you think is SO cool you have to share? Or a classic old favorite? How do you enjoy spending your ballet class?

And finally,
5) What does ballet mean to you (I just think this is a good question...I'm just interested in the responses!)


------------------------------------------------------------
Okay so class guide. You have to post on every new class thread. If you won't be here then please PM me and let me know. I understand the occasional computer problems, but if it's this or that EVERY week we have a problem!

The response doesn't have to be anything big, but I do like critique and response from you. Was there something you liked a lot? Something you didn't like very much? Any input? LET ME KNOW!!

The list I have for this class is:Ballerinacaz

1) Describe your type of music. Do you have a favorite song? A favorite artist? A favorite genre? Give me some details...a couple songs you love or a couple artists that you are obsessed with!

Actually, my favourite song is Forever Young by Youth Group. I don't like the new version by Jay Z. I also love Down to Earth by Justin Bieber. My taste changes a lot, so if you asked me in a week, it'd probably be different! :)

2) What do you hope to gain from this class? Why did you sign up for this particular class?

I'm trying to get as much actual ballet done at home as I can, and not just stretch/strengthen. It just adds to my normal classes and gives me a bit of practice.

3) How many years of ballet have you taken?

Only one year, but I think I've progresses a lot, or I'd hope so anyway!

4) Do you have a new exercise/move that you think is SO cool you have to share? Or a classic old favorite? How do you enjoy spending your ballet class?

I love stretching my back and legs at the same time, so this one's great:
Get a Theraband and tie it round your ankle.
Grab the other end of the band and pull it up over your shoulder, bringing you leg up in a kind of turned in attitude and pull but keep your back up.

And finally,
5) What does ballet mean to you?

Everything! It keeps me sane, and I don't think I'd cope without it.

Thanks for the class. :) Can't wait till next week!

I don't really have a favourite type or anything, I listen to a load of random stuff, but I do really like Colbie Caillat at the moment :)

2) What do you hope to gain from this class? Why did you sign up for this particular class?
I want to do as much dance as I can really, so as I can't do as many 'real' classes as I want, then I thought these would be a good supplement.

3) How many years of ballet have you taken?
Erm I think this is my 6th?

4) Do you have a new exercise/move that you think is SO cool you have to share? Or a classic old favorite? How do you enjoy spending your ballet class?
I don't think I have a particular favourite move, I just love all of it!

And finally,
5) What does ballet mean to you (I just think this is a good question...I'm just interested in the responses!)
Well, ballet, and all dance is pretty much all I do. I don't know what I'd do without it. My friends often get annoyed as I miss so much with my dance, but I'd rather be dancing! x

I love loads of different types of music. I've been told I have the randomest (Yeah, totally a word :P) iPod ever. I suck at picking favourite anythings because they change with my mood. :P

2) What do you hope to gain from this class? Why did you sign up for this particular class?

I just wanted to see what it was like. Curiosity! Also, I love barre. :)

3) How many years of ballet have you taken?

Started in September 09. :)

4) Do you have a new exercise/move that you think is SO cool you have to share? Or a classic old favorite? How do you enjoy spending your ballet class?

I love barre work like glisses and tendus. Footwork is one of my favourites. :)

And finally,
5) What does ballet mean to you (I just think this is a good question...I'm just interested in the responses!)

I just love working towards things, and ballet is something that I enjoy that's hard work and that takes effort, but I can see when I improve. :)

Right now I am downright OBSESSED with Alesana, but I love Family Foprce 5, Blessthefall and The Devil Wears Prada a LOT!

2) What do you hope to gain from this class? Why did you sign up for this particular class?

I am hoping that I can get better at Ballet at home without just doing straight choreography

3) How many years of ballet have you taken?

I took a year a LONG time ago and this is my first year back.

4) Do you have a new exercise/move that you think is SO cool you have to share? Or a classic old favorite? How do you enjoy spending your ballet class?

I just love everything ABOUT Ballet!

And finally,

Ballet means a way to be creative and have something to work towards at the same time. I always have something to aim for in Ballet.

Sorry this is so late!
