MagentaBallerina, not sure what's going on.  Called this morning was  told they had sent notification, but would resend.  I verified email address, still nothing.  Were you able to see award in One.IU?

As I recall the only thing visible on the one.iu site at this point was the approved amount for federal loans.  The Jacobs information was on a separate correspondence from Jacobs along with the signature page that needed to be returned by the college commitment deadline.

I do not think there was anything on one.iu about it. I received the information via my regular email.

Hopefully the new faculty will be able to restore some of the positive spirit of this program.  There was a large void left by Violette Verdy.

Can anyone here speak about scholarship opportunities, both merit and academic?  Are there any substantial scholarships awarded?  We would be out of state so it would seem the tuition is very much out of reach, unless there is a possibility of a substantial scholarship.

Hello Lady Elle,

I suggest you email the department for new info or changes, but in the past there has been merit (artistic) and academic scholarship opportunities available. Good luck!!

3 years ago, DD received a combined merit and artistic scholarship of $18,000/year.  It was about half of tuition and room&board.

There have been substantial changes at IU's ballet program in the past 2-3 months.  I have not been on this board for a while-a little surprised that the changes have not already been posted.  Most of the changes were made over the summer and only communicated to the dancers when they returned for the fall semester.

autumnrose, would you please elaborate on these changes and how/whether they have affected the quality of ballet education offered at Indiana University?

I think it would be best for current IU students, if there are any on the board, to post/comment.  It is my understanding that there has pretty much been a complete change of faculty (and department chair) with only a small amount of transition from the faculty last year to the one that is currently in place.  And, although there was room for improvement in both the emotional support of the dancers/students since Violette departed as well as a void left in the training without her , I don't think it is certain where these new changes will take IUBT.

I think it would be fair to say that the changes are enough to make the current program different from the one Violette was a part of, and different from IU in the year without Violette.  Perhaps current students can comment further.

On the application it says something like "prferred repetoire for audition" .  Does anyone know what they are asking?
