Congratulations. It is so true about only one person has to like her, though it could be stated more positively:wink:

Many thanks for your kind words, everyone! Immashel, we were actually helped by the statement, "Only one person has to like her." The process seemed less intimidating. We were not as hurt by the "no thank yous." We didn't feel as panicky about her pleasing everyone. Dd could be herself and trust that she had a good chance for a fit somewhere. :)

So I thought I would follow up on posting the boy's Vaganova exam to give the wonderful news that my DS was offered a contract with the Bolshoi ballet, which he has accepted. He was also offered a contract with the Mariinsky (which, after considerable thought, he turned down). And he had several other informal offers. I guess all the predictions about his potential have been proven right. Or at least to the extent that he is gainfully employed (work permit permitting!).

I have to say he and we owe a enormous debt of gratitude owed to the kind, caring ad skilled teachers at the Kirov Academy in DC for seeing his potential aged 14 (a late starter!) and nurturing him to a level where he was accepted at the Vaganova in St Petersburg......

 

It feels like stage one of the journey is finally over- now for stage 2!

How exciting CeliB, I've been quietly watching your son's progress here and on BalletCo - what a journey he's had! Congratulations on the two amazing offers and the Bolshoi contract.

Edit: I realized after posting this was in Parents of Boys, my apologies!
