TutuMaker Posted February 19, 2005 Report Share Posted February 19, 2005 Having absolutely no experience in the professional world of ballet companies, big name and regional, I have a question regarding company dancers. My "real" world ballet experiences are limited to studios, and I would like some words of wisdom from those in the know. Thus far, in my dancing kids experience, roles in performances are given to those dancers who are the best for the part, as it should be. The problem occurs when some of those dancers miss MANY rehearsals, in many different productions. It always seem to be the same kids. Some excuses are reasonable; some are not. My intellectual response is, that wouldn't be tolerated of a professional dancer. But is that true? Dance is so subjective. Are companies, like schools, willing to give some dancers leeway, if the alteranative is the dancer will leave? Do companies put up with that kind of behavior if the dancer is exceptional?
