Guest twinklehooves Posted August 23, 2006 Report Share Posted August 23, 2006 Ok, I will be a Senior in high school once school starts up this month. I am from the state of Washington. I have danced for 10 or 11 years now, and I am in the upper level at my dance studio. I'm not interested in dancing professionally when I graduate HS, but I've been told that I am good enough to do that. Around 3 or 4 years ago I auditioned to The Rock SI and PNB's SI and I got into both. That's probably not saying much, and I have no idea where I am at now, but I know that I'm not interested in performing professionally for a company when I graduate. I am going to college however. And I really want to attend a college with a strong ballet background. We are not wealthy, so I will be going to college on financial aid and hopefully scholarships. As well as being a dancer, I have pretty good grades, and I'm also involved in horses. I come from a strong rodeo-oriented family, and I do that as well. I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up, but I think I want to get into Business or Education. I like the idea of owning my own business, plus it's what the world revolves around. However, if I was a teacher then I could work 9 months out of the year and pursue rodeos during the summer [where you can actually win money.] I've been reading up on the thread with all of the talk about colleges, but I was wondering if some people could maybe have somethig to say about the colleges I'm interested in. Central Washington University This is located in my hometown. I could go to college here, and continue my dancing at my studio taking adult classes; but I kind of want to get out of town. Washington State University Doesn't have a ballet program but does have a rodeo team. University of Arizona I read that this has a very strong ballet program. Utah Valley State College Mom tells me that they have both ballet and rodeo there. University of California: Irvine I've read about this on here and it sounds great. Scholarships though? Stanford? It's huge, lots of students, Ivy League...again...scholarships? University of Portland Got a brochure from them, looks great academically but I'm pretty sure that they don't have ballet there and I'd have to take classes on my own time out of school. Any other Oregon colleges... Any suggestions, comments, hints, tips, concerns, ideas....ANYTHING would be appreciated because I really have to start narrowing things down. Thank you.
