I'm looking for a teacher in modern dance, though i don't know if i can afford it, my budget as a student is pretty tight!

Alex R, Birmingham has some excellent drop in classes at the DanceXchange, based at the Hippodrome in central Birmingham. They do Street Dance, Pilates, Jazz, and ballet & other stuff. The street dancers (hip hop) look amazing! There's a student rate, and you'd get some excellent teaching & advice about flexibility. Grwat studios, very friendly, and good facilities (lockers & showers!) But really, doing the splits is not the be all & end all of any dancing - it's just a trick...

I know, but it's a cool trick!

thanks, I have looked into the danceXchange at the Hippodrome, unfortunately the classes clash with other commitments at the moment :( as i'm quite a busy bee at uni! hopefully that'll change soon though, would like to give it a go.

Alex please please please speak to your breakdance teacher about how you are doing your stretches. I am really concerned that you could be doing something to harm yourself.

At the moment if you are not taking modern classes I wouldn't concern yourself about doing too many things to prepare. Once you have found a class that suits you the teacher will be able to give you lots of tips - they won't have expected you to have done any advance prep.

If you really want to do classes you will find a way but in the mean time don't do yourself damage trying to find a shortcut to flexibility - it is not worth it and is only one part of being a good dancer. Instead rent some dance videos watch them and get a feel for the type of stuff you like.

take care
