    Hello & thank you!

    Hello all! I wanted to include a huge thank you to everyone here, especially the moderators, for this invaluable resource. I've learned so much from the threads that are visible to non-members and can't wait to learn more! I've been a dance parent for years, but my oldest dancer (DD12) has just recently made the change from a comp studio to a full time classical ballet program. We're still navigating the ins and outs of her new situation, but so far she is absolutely thriving and very happy with the switch. My DS8 is also a dancer but currently aspires to be a tap dancing comedian, s

    Welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, ScholarPrince - we're glad you found us! As for what to wear for your first class: most studios which teach adult classes for beginners are pretty relaxed about what you wear. Loose clothes which you can move in, with socks, are fine. So jogging (long) bottoms, sweat pants (different names in different versions of English) and a T-shirt are fine - just not jeans, as you know! You can also ask at the studio you're attending. I know that my local studio has a lot of information on its website, designed to be as welcoming as possible - and as non-sc

    Because I am completely new to this art form, I am asking you to correct any mistakes I am making before they can become a problem. I acknowledge I am easily embarrassed. I am 27 years old, I am a man, and I have watched classical ballet performances online for years. I have wanted to learn to dance for years, but I allowed my fears to overcome my desire until just now. I have read a little bit about the terminology, but I think I can only memorize it all through practical experience actually dancing. There is a studio within walking distance of my home where I can learn. I hope I can eve

    Hi! My name is Marianne and I new to BTfD. Im 13 and I’m a pre-pro hoping to go professional. I’ve been on pointe for 4 years and been dancing since I was a little baby. I have never attended any formal summer intensives but this year I’m hoping to go to ABT or Houston Ballet!
  15. Here's the trailer for "Tiny Pretty Things"! Dec 14th on Netfix https://youtu.be/JSs_bznLjPo
  16. Thank you, classicmom and threegirlpileup. Congratulations to those that made it.
  17. Congrats Mconti and AAAsMom! Hopefully we will all hear about the university acceptance soon. Sweetpeacc99, my dd’s first notification from a college program was a rejection... like your dd, she took it pretty well - better than I did. I tend to over analyze everything! These dancers are resilient in so many ways. I hope your dd gets good news soon from one of the other programs she is waiting on!
  18. Sorry she didn’t get better news, and best wishes for her (and you!). The college process is rough. May she land just where she is supposed to be!
  19. My dd received a rejection. She seems to be taking it pretty well. I think she may redo her video and reapply for the January deadline. And she has a couple of other schools that she is still waiting on.
  20. Hi guy!!! What first attracts you to a piece of music? The lyrics? The beat? The melody? The timbre? The beat,that is my opinion How about you?????
  21. Congratulations! My daughter got her acceptance today as well. Sounds like they’ll hear about acceptance to the university mid-January.

    Why do teens quit ballet?

    Our school just announced its not going back until January. It’s been very strict and “safe” since September. DD has already had to decline her level promotion this year due to covid related schedule changes, spent the summer rehabbing a back injury, despises online ballet and at 16 is now looking at academic boarding schools for next year instead of her dream of the full time highest level pre-pro she had to decline this year. I feel that Covid will cause many teens to quit ballet who otherwise would not have.

    Why do teens quit ballet?

    My 16 year old student is on the verge of quitting. This year was supposed to be the critical make-or-break year, with friends going off to trainee positions at companies and other friends considering colleges with ballet programs with a fresh eye. For everyone, a future of drastically reduced hiring into companies seems likely. Online class is a poor substitute for in-person training and every day it feels like you're falling further behind where you would have been in ordinary times.
  24. DD also received her acceptance into the Ballet BFA program today. The letter mentioned that we would hear about University acceptance by mid-January (possibly sooner). She also received an invite to the Ballet Summer Intensive.
  25. Dd received her acceptance to the Ballet BFA today, contingent on being generally admitted to the university. She submittens her materials Nov 1. Hopefully some other dancers heard today too! Still no responses to her emails, but she got a form email this week from the University letting her know that they received and are reviewing her general application.
  26. Earlier
  27. Yes, I read the book. Excited to see they made a show but just went on line to read about the show and it seems they changed a lot of the plot and the characters so we will see!
  28. Very excited to see this show! Has anyone read the book?
  29. Many universities have summer intensive programs, I think Point Park, Alvin Ailey (they do the Fordham program), and UNCSA also have programs. You can find information on the summer programs under the Summer Intensives heading. Most of the summer programs are listed in the 2020/2021 Summer Intensive forum. Threads for each SI are listed in alphabetical order, the programs at universities are mixed in with the other summer intensives. To find information for the year round programs at universities, look in the forum Colleges/Universities with Ballet or Dance Programs..., found under the Care
