tendu05 Posted October 5, 2008 Report Share Posted October 5, 2008 just a question.. hopefully someone can give me advice. im 22 and just graduated from a school for ballet... i auditioned in the spring, but didnt get any offers. i havn't been training in serious ballet for very long, but i have accomplished a lot in a short period of time. i havnt danced much since may, maybe 4 or 5 classes, but i really miss it. i want to go back to school for ballet, but my parents dont support me. i have a pretty good job now, that couold possibly lead to a great job, but sometimes money isnt what makes you happy. i understand that a dance career doesnt make much money, and that most of the time dancers need a second job. but im willing to do that. my parents think that since i have this (what they think is great) job i should stick with it. money is tight and ballet is very expensive... i understand that... but i personally believe i should do what makes me happy.. is that wrong?? does anyone have any advice on how i can explain to them what i want to do... and not what they think i should do??? what would you do in this situation?? id love advice from parents!! thanks!
