Today I have dedicated adult student Karrigan Taylor talking with me about her reasons and experience about Adult Ballet!
1. "How old are you?"
Answer: I am 21 years old.
2. "When did you start taking adult ballet classes with RBO?"
Answer: I started about a month ago. I’ve been going 2-3 times a week since I started on September 2st.
3. "What made you want to start doing ballet?"
Answer: I did ballet when I was younger and quit when I was a teenager. I always felt like ballet wasn’t for me or that I couldn’t enjoy it. As I got older I started to appreciate it a lot more and regretted not sticking with it. I have wanted to go back for a long time but could never find a studio.
4. "What made you choose RBO?"
Answer: I chose RBO mainly because of the pointe classes they offer for beginners. I was really interested in starting pointe as an adult but it’s very rare to come across that. After going to one class I saw how great of a studio RBO is, and how much attention and care they give to their students that I haven’t missed a class!
5. "What is your favorite ballet?"
Answer: My favorite ballet is the Nutcracker. I love the costumes and music, not to mention Christmas is my favorite time of the year. .
6. "What is your ballet goal?"
Answer: I would love to get my technique down solid to the point where I won’t have to think about it as much. I would love to be able to dance en pointe with stable balance, and I also want to gain more flexibility.
7. "Would you suggest RBO to other adults interested in learning ballet?"
Answer: Absolutely! I have already brought my mom to the studio as well as my best friend. They both love it and have a wonderful time learning. I would 100% suggest RBO to anyone wanting to start ballet.
