smalltown Posted September 14, 2008 Report Share Posted September 14, 2008 (edited) In 2008 my 13 y.o. DD received scholarships to every SI she auditioned for (Joffrey, PNB, Kirov, and SAB). She auditioned for SFB school and was not even accepted, let alone scholarshipped. She went to SAB this summer, but wants to go to SFB since it is only a few hours away (of course, the most convenient school is the one she doesn't get accepted to). Any suggestions as to what might be different about what SFB is looking for? I am inclined to think it is a different body type. DD said she auditioned well, but from the first plie she could tell they weren't interested. She will be 14 by one week or so when she auditions this year. She is 5'7" with good pointe work and a long, loose body and great turn out. She is weak in presentation and port de bras. At SAB, there was an excellent dancer her same age with same body type but shorter who also was rejected by only SFB (and she was at SAB on full scholarship at 13)! The gal said she had auditioned for 18 SI's and her only rejection was SFB. Curious? Has anyone else had a similar experience? Thanks for your help.
