e_bunny, your profile indicates that you are a young student, as do many of your posts.  However, your most recent posts appear to be written by a parent. 

If so, please have your parent register with his/her own account. We do not permit the sharing of accounts on BT4D.  It is important to us that we ' know' with whom we are talking. 🙂 

We also have several Forums that are restricted to specific groups, so it will help you and your parent should you wish to participate in any of those Forums. 👍

 

Also so a gentle reminder that it is against BT4D Rules and Policies for adult members to PM young dancer members.

Thank you, balletmuse! I got the info and will visit them as soon as I get back to LA. 

dancemaven, my parents are with me in this school search thing, that's why we use "we" since everyone is around me, giving inputs when I type, but to avoid confusion, I will use "I" from now on. If my parents have more specific questions, I will have them register another account. Thank you for your concern and reminder.

e_bunny - My DD said that an announcement was made at Westside that pointe classes wouldn't be used for rep anymore. This was from the AD. I'm not sure of the reason for the change, but DD is very happy about it, as it bothered her as well. If you haven't settled on anything else for your training, Westside is worth checking out. The teachers are all excellent.

I attended Westside for almost two years, ended up being forced to leave by the awful experience my family and I had there.  I'm honestly not sure where to start.  If you don't have a mother that is exclusively a "dance mom" (meaning they will sew costumes, donate extra money, go to every parent board meeting, volunteer at every show...), you will be tossed to the side.  The teachers are good, but the class sizes of Westside are large and by some point, you realize you won't be given corrections if you aren't a favorite.  Westside calls themselves a "nonaudition school that allows everyone," but if they want you to leave, it will be obvious.  Teachers rolled their eyes at me when I tried to ask genuine questions, kicked me out of rehearsals I was told to understudy then yelled at for not knowing the choreography, lied to me and my mother... No, they don't use pointe for rehearsal, but this means rehearsal is only once a week, until it gets close to a performance.
