Guest nabema Posted January 6, 2005 Report Share Posted January 6, 2005 Well, lately, I have been wondering whether my technique is strong enough for my age to be able to go on with a professional career in ballet with a good/major company. I'm 15 years old (but turning 16 in March, which makes me uneasy because it seems that 16 is the cutoff year for most places) and I would say that I am an advanced intermediate dancer. I study at a good school in New York as well as taking class at my high school (which is also in the city), and the students in my level are in my age group, if not my exact age. My teachers say that I am improving a lot and that I work well, though none of them mention my potential as a professional dancer just yet (should I ask them?). I just want to be realistic, because I have seen dancers at 13 and 14 who are practically professional. I am aware that everyone reaches their peak at different times, but would you think it ridiculous for someone who is approaching 16 with solid advanced intermediate training to pursue a career in ballet? Thank you. Quote Link to comment
