Ballet Talk for Dancers


Recommended Posts


Hello, all!


I am the mother of a freshly 9 y/o girl who has been dancing seriously since she was 2 y/o. (I realize that sounds nuts, but that's her personality -- serious and focused!)


She has been expressing her frustration with her current program, and recently dropped a bombshell: she has long wanted to work toward a career in ballet, but only recently found the courage to say it aloud. Big decisions are coming: She's currently at an excellent school in a major city, and while several alumni have gone on to respected programs, the school itself is definitely not designed to graduate professional dancers.


I stand at a crossroads, weighing options. I'm sure I'm going to gain a lot of insight from the experts here -- so thank you all, in advance!
