foliedespagne Posted December 2, 2008 Report Share Posted December 2, 2008 Hi there, I have a relatively "new to ballet" boy dancer, just turned 14, still small for his age. He definitely has talent, but not a lot of technique yet as he started studying ballet seriously about a year ago. He's done lots of other types of dance. He'd really like to do an SI as we are in a small town and have no pre-professional school here. I feel overwhelmed by the number of SIs and don't really know where to start. Also we're going to be out of the country during the audition tours, so if we do do this, we'll need to make a tape. On top of that, his teacher will be leaving mid-December on a trip and probably won't have the time to help ds make a tape before then. Also can anyone chime in as to how the various SIs choose students...is it potential or what has already been accomplished. We know he's behind technique-wise and are trying to address this during the summer. But we don't want to have him apply to places where he has no chance at all. We'd be most grateful for any help/suggestions. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
