*School of American Ballet
*The Harid Conservatory
*The Kirov Academy
The one's I really like so far are SAB and Harid. I like them because you go to a public high school for academic classes instead of having a school conjoined like at Kirov, Walnut Hill, Interlochen and Idyllwild. I like this because you can make friends outside of the dance studios. Unfourtuntely, I'm afraid SAB might be too hard for me to get into and at Harid apparently you don't make too many friendships with people at the school because you only go there in the beginning of the day and don't attend many school events.
Also, I've only been dancing for only 3 years but I'm very dedicated. This year I am attending two studios and have 1.5 hours of ballet on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Saturday and 1 hour of ballet on Thursdays, as well as Jazz for 1 hour on Wensdays and Tap and Modern (1 hour each) on Thursdays. Next year I want to do 3 or 4 hours of dance per day and I want to go to two more studios (and the two studios I'm going to now) if the schedules can work out. When I audition and apply do they need to know how many years I've been doing this for? Also, I'm going on pointe shoes in a month.
My questions are:
Will I be good enough to get into any of these?
Are there any other ballet schools that offer year round boarding (in USA only please)?
EDIT: And by the way I'm not going to be auditioning until NEXT year I'm in 7th grade right now.
