I wondered if anyone could advise me on the importance of training in other forms of dance if one is hoping to attend a classical ballet upper school at 16? My daughter is 13 and does classical ballet class every day but she is wondering whether she should be also doing other forms of dance as well. her current teacher thinks she should be doing some contemporary dance training too as this is taught in vocational classical schools here in the uk. our problem is finding the time to fit it into her already full timetable of ballet classes.

At 13, I don't think it is absolutely necessary to have contemporary classes regularly, but if she could get a few in to at least be familiar with the different way of moving required in contemporary dance, it would probably be helpful for her. Something like a one week workshop or a course that is over a 1 month period would probably suffice for now. She's still pretty young.
