americanlostinUK Posted March 9, 2006 Report Share Posted March 9, 2006 i really want to dance. my life revolves around it. trouble is, i'm not that good. i'm sure most have you have read my recent posts but if not, ill give another carrie history a) started dance (ballet) at age 13, am now fifteen and in junior year-looking at colleges. do about eight hours of ballet a week--not as advanced as i'd like to be, definitly not prepro intermediate not the perfect ballet body at all -- i'm rather big (not huge, but quite a bit bigger than ideal) in the hip and thigh department which is a genetic thing. i don't exactly have the longest legs, but as far as i know i'm realtively porportional. i have a chest but there ain't a lot of it. (sorry if this much detail isn't necessary. im just trying to get it all out there) that said about my body, i've always been flexible, even before i started to dance, and everyone tells me i have good feet, though they're not amazing. and i'm also hyperextended in the elbows and knees which has given me loads of trouble with proper placement but for some reason people seem to think it's not a bad thing. okay so i'm looking at colleges and i know that there's no way that you guys, never having seen me dance or even seen me for that matter or taken class with me can give me an evaluation. i'm hoping that you can tell me whether or not it is reasonalbe to look into getting a degree in dance with a focus in ballet (at least thats how i'm looking at it now, i've never even taken a modern class so i don't see doing anything with modern as much of an option especially since i don't even know whether or not i'd like it) by degree i am thinking minor or major. i don't know what other degrees you can get but thats what i mean. fordham university is my favorite to look at so far, but columbia/barnard is not far behind (i have relatively strong academics) do you guys, without knowing or having seen me, think this is too much of a reach for a late starter with my history? i am looking for opinions here. one no is not going to send me off this train of thought, nor will one yes bind me to it. i really want to know what you think. if this is an unreasonable thing to ask moderaters, please remove it. thanks ever so much carrie edited by americanlostinUK to add *not quite sure how that smilie got there and can't remove it....sorry* Quote Link to comment
