How much artistic influence should be used in the ballet class, and how much should be saved for rehearsal. I have studied with some people who think of the classroom as someplace to focus, and I have worked with some people who view the class as a place to explore and experiment with what the body can do. Anyway, I would like to know how others feel on the subject.
I have come across the idea of ballet class as a place to focus before. So, it would appear that this is an interesting idea to explore. What do others think? In your comments, please indicate if you are answering as a dancer, teacher, or from another perspective.
