Students today seem to spend a lot of time on Repertoire Variations for various competitions both nationally and internationally. When it comes to choosing a variation, I believe it should always be one that is:
- Achievable both technically, artistically and musically
- Chosen from Company Repertoire (not from a competition)
- A single version in its entirety (not a mix of several versions)
- Suited to the student’s personality and attributes
With these in mind, amongst other aspects for consideration, students should gain the most benefit.
