windsongs Posted December 9, 2005 Report Share Posted December 9, 2005 Hi, So my general question is outlined by the title - is there a real chance to become a professional dancer if I start pre-professional training at the age of 15? I have taken ballet for about 7 years, but never professionally. I have always loved it and it has been a passion of mine, but right now, I want to be realistic. Currently I am fourteen years old (I'll be turning 15 in approx. 2 months). I want to get on the professional track, but is there even a good chance I'll be accepted to any pre-professional schools when there are so many out there who are much better than me in their technique and who have received better and more intensive training? I want to give this a shot but, at the same time, I want to know if it's worth it. I know that by the age of 15, many young "ballerinas" are extremely good and talented in their art. I am just asking for your opinion (and the facts, too) - I would like to know, even if the truth stings. And if there is a chance, is there any advice you would be able to offer me in pursuing this goal of mine? Anything would be appreciated very much. Thank you. Love, *windsongs* Quote Link to comment
