janninepointe Posted November 17, 2005 Report Share Posted November 17, 2005 I've been getting reaaallly mixed messages on whether you are good enough to professionally dance. At times it looks like it's really hard to get up to that level and at other times people tell me I should go for it and there are other things that show me I probally could. I'm on the verge of trying out for certain programs that might accept me but I really dont know if I can... How would you evalulate yourself. What should a girl be able to do if she is 14? Besides being proportionally right for ballet? I know it probally varies with every program but on average how much technique should one have? What is acceptable to be able to stand a chance at being able to get into a good program? I'm in a state of being very confused at the moment it would help if someone could give me some guidelines. I am the best in my classes and have a very strong foot, I'm flexible etc. but I'm not at a professional/pre-professional school although my teachers are very good and were. I know it's hard to get in balletschools at this age without being in one before. I'm taking 4 classes a week and starting january I'm going to take one more with student much older and better than me. I practise every day consistently. Im still worried though what should average girls my age be able to manage??? Thankyou very much Im sorry this is so long but lots of people I know are asking themselfs the same question I think its one many people would like to know the answer to. It would help us sort out our lives =P Quote Link to comment
