Guest tootallgarza Posted October 31, 2005 Report Share Posted October 31, 2005 Hello all, I have not posted on here for quite some time but wanted to thank all those who helped me find ballet shoes for my extremely large feet. As I am finishing up my 3rd month of training I have come to the ephiphany that ballet is what I want to do with my life. It started as a childhood dream and has quickly become an all encompassing passion. My question is in respect to searching for and auditioning for my first summer intensive. Being that I am so new to ballet I undoubtedly know that I will have little to no chance being accepted into the more prestigious schools yet I am not willing to accept that until they tell me NO. As such, as of know I plan on auditioning for as many S.I.'s as possible. Being that I am a very late starter at 22 I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what it takes to be prepared for acceptance into a summer program. (Most if not all posts are regarding women) I presently take 8-10 classes a week as well as private training on sundays. I was recently offered the opportunity to join the advanced division at my school and have thus been offered the opportunity to work on pas de deux as well and will be performing for the first time in early january in Don Quixote. I guess my real question is if any of ya'll have any advice/stories of your experinces in getting accepted into a good Summer Intensive as I realize that there are probably certain things that will be required of a male that are not required of the women and vice versa. Again thank you to anyone and everyone for taking the time to read this post and all the best in each or your pursuits. Respectfully, JEFF Quote Link to comment
