Question...RAD & Vaganova

Hey There!

I had a few questions and I hope you can help me out!
I'm working on an essay about the RAD method (Royal Academy of Dance). I'm writing about the differences between RAD and Vaganova. I've already found a few differences, but if you can tell me more about the differences between those two methods, I'd be very pleased!
Next to that I'd like to include pictures of the armpositions (5) of RAD and of the 3 basic arabesques of RAD. I can't find those pictures like they're drawn in the books of RAD, I hope someone can help me out... Thanx!!

Alright, I have a question for you all from a friend of mine, and any answers and/or advice would be very much appreciated:

If you are considering a career path in ballet, how old is 'too old'? How long should you have been dancing for? And we both assume that just lessons at a local dance studio wouldn't be enough, and would a national ballet school be the only option? If you are 15-almost-sixteen, is it too late to be accepted, and are you too far behind? She has had a bit of training as a young child, but hasn't danced in years, although she is in very excellent physical shape. Remember, this is for National Ballet Company style of thing.

Thanks a lot, and I (and she) wish you all tons of luck and rhythm.

Hello there dancers. I'm going to be trying out for my highschool dance team this week. It'll be for my junior year. I'd really love to make it, but it's also no big loss if i dont. Whoever reads this, I'd just like your support. Wish me luck i suppose. Becuase ballet is more my thing, and dance team is jazz, but im going to try really hard.


Thanks for the support!

I am in desperate need of some help.

I really need to impress my dance teacher at the upcoming auditions for our competetive team, and i would really like to get my switch split. Is there anything that you can suggest that can help me with that. Right now I am nowhere close to split, and i am not happy about it.

thanks in advanced

Easter and ballet and their sweet coexistence!

For easter i got the movies The Nutcracker. It was so beautiful. I loved it and loved the way Balanchine choreographed it. I also got An American In Paris and Daddy Long Legs. Both of those have Leslie Caron. She's a french ballerina from the 50s and 60s. She amazing.

This year's recital will be the best!!! Im en pointe for it!!!! Our costumes are beautiful. We're dancing to Simon and Garfunkel's Scarborough Fair. It's beautiful.


Then for our ballet/lyrical. we're dancing to I can Only Imagine. Also very expressive. very moving. i think we'll make people cry.
