cecchettiballetgirl Posted July 28, 2006 Report Share Posted July 28, 2006 I just got back from Quinte Ballet School's summer program and I've been offered a spot in the year round professional program. I was very excited to find out because I'm a late starter so I didn't think I would ever get an opportunity like this. Unfortunately, my parents aren't letting me go because they say the chances of making it as a dancer are very low and it is really expensive and they don't think they can afford it. I loved the summer program- the teachers, the training and the other students- and I want to go more than anything else in the world. I'm fifteen and I know that if I don't go, I won't really have a chance at making it. My mom doesn't think that it will be worth it to go for two years though, and she's said that she's heard from others that the school isn't very good anymore and it isn't worth it to send me there. I just don't know what to do or how to convince my parents that I need to go. They keep saying that this isn't the only way...but isn't it? Quote Link to comment
