As for trading off ballet classes for Pilates classes, I would stick with ballet classes but make students aware of Pilates. Many of the exercises students can learn quickly and do on their own. You may give an orientation class or two and see who takes to it. But Pilates shouldn't take the place of technique class. It will definitely build the muscle groups that will help with pirouettes and jetes, but it doesn't teach students to move or approach technique. Only old-fashion ballet class does that. Pilates is a great resource and builds allignment, strength, and flexibilty. but it does not take the place of technique class.

Actually, ostrich, this question is off-topic for this forum. It is completely appropriate for BalletTalk for Dancers, though. Acquiring skills and technique are not within the scope of this board.
I'll leave the question and carolina's reply, but I'm going to close the topic to further discussion.
