cunninghamtaxi Posted January 1, 2009 Report Share Posted January 1, 2009 My Daughter last semester switched ballet schools to a pre professional program. This particular school has many girls who are homeschool or leave highschool early to take classes in the late moring. Their schedule is Monday thur Friday a technique followed by a pointe class. In addition to that they have evening classes and this is when my daughter goes. The problem is although my dd has technique class monday-saturday they do not have a pointe class each day in the evening just three times a week. The girls who go during the day are very good but I had a problem with giving up going to a regular high school since my dd is a junior and is almost finished school. Her problem is she feels like she will never caught up to these other girls since they have so many more classes and at times feels left out since she is not part of the day program. I guess I am looking for advice on how many classes she should be taking. We love the new school it excellent as far as traing goes. Do you think she should try to fit in lower level classes, try to somehow take some morning classes, or should I give in and let her go to the day program. I Should add that my daughter would like to pursue a career in dance which is why we switched schools in the first place. Your advice would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
