I'm new at this but am already a huge fan of Ballet Talk!! I have a DD that just turned 17 and a DS that is 13. Both are in a full day ballet and academic program 8:00am - 6:00pm plus Saturdays. They both love it and want to pursue dance careers. :) What an adventure!!!

One dd, 14 who wants more than anything to dance professionally. Working toward a residency program. Two ds, 16 and 12' both with some training in ballet, tap, and jazz who like musical theater and both play piano and string instruments. Older son mostly into physics and math over performing, though! ;)

DD 13 wants to teach dance- She loves choreographing- She is doing her grade 5 RAD and her british medallian tap this year. She plans on doing her assoiciate in tap as soon as she is old enough and do her RAD and Cecchitti (SP?) teaching at post secondary

DS9 has been accepted at the National Ballet school foe the summer program- He is doing his grade 2 RAD and Gold tap this year He is also in a local school Ballet company where he works on stuff much higher than grade 2 RAD

And oh yes I am a bad speller
