  1. Ballet as a child

    Hello All i was wondering how many of you took ballet lessons as a child. Some people have very mixed feelings about their ballet lessons when they were children. What were your memories of ballet as a child?

    I now run a ballet school, so I have only ballet pupils. Most times things have a way of working themselves out. Although I do miss the studio from time to time I would never replace my ballet school.

    That's an interesting response. On the contrary I would have thought that the economic climate in a given situation would be crucial to the success or failure of a business. I had a dance studio for 17 years in London and unfortunately during the economic downturn in the UK my studio and two others in the area went under within 12 months of each other. When I started my studio I didn't think of anything but the studio getting off the ground. But knowing what I know now I would definitely give the economic climate some attention before starting anything that required significant investment at the start up.

    I’ve just seen the introduction of a new coin on Facebook. I wonder how wise that is in the current market?

  12. Regulations are a slippery slope for the crypto sphere. This inevitably means government intervention, and loss of privacy. I think some governments are already demanding that Coinbase submit customer profiles. Crypto currency is unfortunately used for many unsavoury projects like money laundering but so is fiat. If I were forced to choose I would reject government intervention even with the risks that shroud crypto?

    Gosh most of my clients don't even understand Bitcoin let alone Artebyte, but I get the point. Thanks for that. I guess it's a matter of taking up the mantle

    Hi Frank when you say "work more with the team" what does that actually involve in real terms?

    I think it was around the spike period that I actually purchased Artebyte for the first time. At the time I didn't understand what had happened and was devastated by the price plummeting. It was quite a rude awakening about the crypto sphere. I think hodling is the best way forward. But hodling over an extended period of time.

  18. It was only a suggestion. You may be right; I’m not really sure?

    It's a good choice. Ballet has a robust dance technique that can enhance many other dance forms were your child try something different later on.
  20. Ballet as a child

    Training a young body for dance is like a musician learning his scales and arpeggios. They can be very dull but through the rigours of routine a dancer builds a physical instrument capable of movement competence. Unfortunately it is at this stage that many children abandon ballet stating that it is boring. Even more unfortunate is that years later many regret leaving dance and try to recapture their love of dance through adult ballet. As a teacher I would always encourage parents to push through times where children are struggling with motivation. Even moreso now as ballet certificates from grade 5 offer academic credits that are recognised and accepted for University applications

    I have kids who start at 3. But that is usually, creative mime, story telling and dancing to nursery rhymes. For proper pre-Ballet, 5 years is a good age.?
