Gender: Female

 

Main/Most recent training: Small ballet school- first local and then in nearby major city.
Audition method: Summer intensive. This program does not require SI attendance for the position, but this is how dd ended up with a position.
Position granted: Trainee as school
Position process/progress: from outside
If Trainee: School trainee. Program is considered a bridge between student and company life. There is also a paid second company. Trainee program is tuition based with financial aid and scholarship money available. Scholarship money is available for those that do attend the SI (this is what it said within information dancer was given with the official offer). Tuition without scholarship is very similar to what we had paid for about half as many hours of instruction for the last several years. Program runs 6-8 hours/day.
Location of company: US
Was this contract offered at a competition or because of competition attendance? No. Dancer has never competed.

In the middle SI audition season, dd had decided that she did not want to seek a trainee position for the following year. She thought she wanted to stay at her non-company affiliated ballet school for one more year, to polish what she had been learning there. She was not sure she was quite ready technically for the next step but she had only been at her new school for a short while and did not know how she would feel come summer. This company was one that the faculty at her school thought would be a particularly good match. Looks they were right about that. :)
