12345 Posted February 15, 2008 Report Share Posted February 15, 2008 momof3darlings so do you feel like you have to make the choice of serious ballet student OR competitive studio student? i definitley do. my dd this year has developed that love for ballet and wants to puruse it - but because we had already made the competitive studio company comitment (and paid for choreography, costumes, etc) she is finishing the year. we have supplemented on our own the YAGP and she takes (with class card) at a local ballet school one day a week (2hr class, 90 minutes tech +30 pointe). because she not only does the various forms (jazz, lyrical, contemporary, in addition to ballet) she also takes acting, a triple threat class, plus private voice - i feel like it's just crazy to try and do both ballet and competitive/performing arts. we are doing both currently and its just so time consuming. as many competitive studios are in mode right now - the competition season is just begining. we have 4 workshop/competitons coming up, plus an additional competition, and throwing in YAGP, then a play, vocal concert, and end of year recital. oh yeah and academics! i would love to hear how you balance girls at 2 different studios. and also what your thoughts are on doing full time ballet school but supplementing jazz/lyrical and possibly voice at a different studio. and also maybe still attending some conventions of our choosing and/or competing a ballet solo? how does that work with ballet schools? do they have a company? are you invited or do you just ask to do a solo or how does this work? i'm worried that the slower pace might end up turining my dd off after a few months since she is used to nonstop busyness.
