scdancergal1 Posted July 31, 2008 Report Share Posted July 31, 2008 So i am 14 and i have a brother who is 17 who is also a dancer with a main focus in ballet, I too am also mainly focused in ballet. Growing up in my brother's shadow, i found that i ran into alot of issues. First of all, I love ballet but i have bean going back a forth between ballet and contemporary. I know that i love ballet more but i feel that if i continue doing strict ballet i will be lost in my brothers shoes but a part of me wants to do contemporary cause when i do it i feel like it my "own thing" and i have nothing to live up to! My brother attends harrid ballet conservatory in florida and has bean since he was a sophmore. And when he was 13 he attended JKO through ABT in NYC and since he was 12 he has bean attending multiple summer intensives. I've danced recreationaly and in small town studios, and have not bean to one summer intensive, not by choice but for other reasons. Im proud of my brother and look up to him, dont get me wrong but i sometimes get gelouse and often times feel like its not fair. I just dont know how to look at this situation?! Can anyone relate or tell me how i SHOULD be looking at this?! Quote Link to comment
