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.
