pastpointe Posted January 20, 2008 Report Share Posted January 20, 2008 18-year old daughter will be returning from SMU Audition this weekend. She loves the University and is excited about their AdvertisingProgram. She scored very well on SATs and is academically accepted. She was very sad and perhaps a bit surprised not to have made the cuts for the Meadows dance program. She is currently a Senior Company Member with her preprofessional ballet company many of whom have gone on to major in ballet at Indiana and Butler. She was hoping to minor in dance. She has only had classical ballet at her home school other than limited modern/ summer exposure at various Intensives. Though she does not wish to dance professionally, she is not really ready to relegate ballet to the twice a week, non-major classes only somewhat available (if you're lucky enough to get in) at SMU. Furthermore, their highest level appears to be Intermediate Ballet, Modern Dance, or Jazz. It doesn't even appear that they offer pointe which is her strength. Any ideas for good school(s) easily accessible to SMU? She will not have a car with her freshman year. (Any other advice regarding this - other than go with a second choice University where she has been accepted, which is not an option due to the desirability of the academic program at SMU...)
