Robin G Posted September 13, 2006 Report Share Posted September 13, 2006 For the high school senior age dancer that choice comes to decide on college or Company auditions. I see many going through this tough decision right now. Some have held off on college to pursue dance positions, some are having success, some are still trying hard. The good news for those who choose college is there are more dancers able to get good jobs after college dance. There is an article in Pointe discussing how dancers have been trained to do classical ballets and college dance teaches them the new component of modern and choreography. The goal is to be able to move in a new way to adapt to new choreographers. This explains why in college modern becomes so important. Desmond Richardson recently taught classical ballet dancers how to move in a different style than they were used to -and it was truely a whole new world. There will always be a need to dance Swan Lake but there's a new world of dancing as well. New choices and opportunities in dance. Quote Link to comment
