His home studio is good and owned by former principals from well known compainies. However, it's just not enough hours and he needs to be in an environment that matches his life goals. It also makes balancing the academics a little bit easier. They've said they should be in ballet class 6 days a week by age 13.
I do think some can start late. We have a friend who started at 16 but also most are athletic and their bodies are well suited.
My 12 yr old son also dances and he was being courted by the SI artistic director (it's a different residential program). He's 2 yrs away from high school.
It is a stressful process to make sure you are doing the right thing for your children. I pray I've raised him well up to this point so he makes good decisions while he's away!
