msd Posted October 6, 2006 Report Share Posted October 6, 2006 Dd LOVES to perform. She attends a company-attached pre-pro school, which has allowed her several wonderful opportunities over the years in various kids' roles. She also has performed with another group w/in the city, which has allowed her still more performing opportunities. Now, however, she's cast in what will probably be her last company Nutcracker for a while, as she *just* squeaked under the "too tall" line. (The company does not use the Academy kids for corps roles...so after one "outgrows" the kids' parts, that's it for the kids until or unless one becomes a trainee.) The other performing group had a major falling out between the AD and the board, and I am pretty sure that's it for that group. She does (and will) perform annually in the school's spring workshop...but it's starting to hit us both that she may be in for a few years of mostly class. Have others found themselves in a similar position as their dancers "outgrow" kids' roles? (Dd is 13.) This kid positively thrives on rehearsals and performance, the craziness of theater week. Thoughts? Quote Link to comment
