Wait list

Recommended Posts


Hello! I am 15 and I dance six days a week. I know audition season has long passed, but is being wait listed a bad thing or is it okay? I want to make sure I'm not behind for my age. I was accepted to three intensives, wait listed to two (I didn't ask to be kept on the wait list), and rejected at one. Does that sound okay?

Pirouettegirl, acceptance, rejection, or wait listed is not a criteria for whether you are okay for your age or not. Nor is the fact that you dance six days a week. The fact that you were accepted to three is more important. Not every dancer in a good training program is right for every program. It is the same with auditioning for companies. You can be a brilliant dancer and still not be the right fit for a given company.  Keep your focus on your training, your goals, hard work, and the reality that at 15 you still have a lot of time. :)
