Why would you wait until after high school to try for a professional school? The time is sooner rather than later! :D

Yes, unless the school you attend has the ability to train you to the professional level. Some do, some don't.

I don't recommend schools by method. I don't believe in one method over another, and all of them are fine. It's the teaching that matters, and the reputation of the school for training dancers. In Canada that would be NBS, Winnipeg, and perhaps Quinte? I'm not sure. Not totally familiar with all of the schools there. I know National is good. I also think that the GOH school, in Vancouver, is very good.

The fact that you are asking what to do next leads me to wonder why you would need to be asking, if you were in a school that trains dancers. The progression through the levels should be automatic, at least to the point where you are still progressing and showing potential for further progress. I don't understand RAD system in terms of the grades, Int. foundation, whatever. None of that makes any sense to me at all, as I teach in the type of school that does not do exams. The students start in Level 1, move through the years to Level 6, and then, IF they have the technique and potential they should have at that level, they move into Release Time B, then Release Time A. These are equivalent to Levels 7 and 8. By the end of high school, if you are in level 8, then you should be ready to audition for a company in at least a trainee or apprentice position, if not full company. Our graduates do not move on to another school, they move either into college or into a professional company.
