Guest balletandsynchro Posted January 18, 2008 Report Share Posted January 18, 2008 As the parent of a DD who has attended a company affiliated ballet school, (among others), I have always been intrigued by the very few students who move into a company after attending the attached ballet school. It seems that there are a few companies that draw from their own schools; yet the majority do not. Most of the company members come from elsewhere. I should think that these schools would be the perfect feeder into the Company, yet for most, it doesn't seem to be the route. As the AD has his or her own vision for the company, why wouldn't that vision be a part of the school as well? There are many company attached schools and it surprises me that while the technical training is great, the training does not necessarily equip the dancers with the skills needed to be a dancer in that particular company.
