SFB2b Posted May 30, 2004 Report Share Posted May 30, 2004 I really wanted to go away for ballet next school year (I'll be in 9th grade) but for many reasons, mainly my mom doesnt want me to, it looks like I'll most likely be at home. I'm not sure though if I should stay at my current school or switch to another school in my general area. The other school is about a 45 minute drive (1 hour and 30 minutes with traffic), and my getting there would take a great deal of public transportation and walking since both my parents have to work full time to be able to afford living in our area. It would definitely put a strain on our family life since I would not get home until 8:30 or later most weeknights. My current school is a good school, and I had a good audition season... I got into School of American Ballet, Boston Ballet, and Universal Ballet Academy. I'm pretty happy with my current school, the teachers are great. The only thing is they only offer 4 technique classes a week for my level. I know this is inadequate, so I usually make it to 2 open classes a week. The other school has more classes, and I've heard they're more "hardcore." Is it worth it to go to the new school for just 1 year or 2 years at the most or should I stay at my current school until I go away? Thanks so much (in advance ). Quote Link to comment
