interestedparty Posted September 18, 2008 Report Share Posted September 18, 2008 This question is mainly for the moderators, but I'd appreciate input from anyone in the know about this. I have three children, the youngest being a nine-year-old daughter who loves ballet and wants to be a professional dancer when she grows up. I have been told by two teachers at her reputable, pre-pro school that she has a very nice potential in ballet. The problem is that we are finding it very difficult to afford her training, and each year the cost goes up. We are paying college tuition for our eldest and all the other expenses for activities and necessities that having three children entails. We homeschool out of necessity, having a child with extensive learning disabilities; therefore, must get by on one income. The academy where our dd is currently training doesn't give scholarships for children my daughter's age. I have already asked! They must think I'm a nut case! Anyway, I was thinking of taking her to audition early next year at three other reputable academies in our area to see if they might offer her a scholarship. Would it be terribly rude to state on the audition form that my dd would not be able to attend their school without a scholarship? It would be the simple truth. If they cannot offer her a scholarship, we'll just continue to tough it out where we are. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Quote Link to comment
