I have heard very good things about USF and Goucher College concerning their dance programs (through websites and articles), but does anyone have any personal experience (or know of someone who does) concerning either of these colleges.
I know one good thing about Goucher is that there is a "placement" class, and not a true "audition" to get into the program like at USF. But I would like to know anyone's personal feelings about these programs. Like which one has the most pointe classes (per week), or more ballet classes, which school can boast the most alumni in professional companies?
Wherever this gets posted, I'd appreciate any anecdotes (I've learned more from Ballet alert than I have in my own personal research, hands down!)

USF has Gretchen Ward Warren, who wrote that one book, doesn't it? I'm pretty sure that that's where she is, and she is supposed to be an excellent teacher.

If anyone has any specific questions about the program. let me know. Am making a list.
Contacted the dance department by phone yesterday and found the woman who answered very helpful.
There's a hotel right on campus, too, very convenient.

BFA performance and BA Dance Studies option. BFA with ballet focus requires 4 years ballet (to level IV) and 3 years Modern (to level III). Studios big, airy.
Faculty & staff very welcoming; we observed ballet and modern classes. Some students have gone on to professional dance careers. USF remains on dd's list . . .
