When training to become a dancer it will be normal to have a teacher. It will be someone who has the experience and the know-how to show you how to do pretty much everything. They will know better because they have actually done what you are trying to do for most of the time.
This pattern continues when you step into company life because the choreographers, assistants, ballet masters will “know” how it should look like and what “right” or “wrong” looks like.
When you develop your own career goal, this logic no longer applies. No one will be able to give you a blue print for the choices you’ll have to make because no one has actually done it exactly your way.
