Olivia, it is fine except that it needs separation between the major sections. You have put them in bold, but there is no space between one category and another. Also, check your spelling on "address" . :D


I edited out your full name and email address just for safety purposes, since you posted on a YD forum. :)

Ms. Leigh,

I would love to have you view my resume and a cover letter I have done and let me know what you think, only I do not want to post it on the board. I have not made 30 posts yet so I am unable to send you a PM. Is there some other way I can do this?

Thanks so much!

Hi livy. I see your new to ballet talk so i can not send you a PM. But I am very interested in Denvers dance scene and was hoping you could email me more information about Hannah Kahn's company.

Meghan, having your email address in your profile is really not a terrific idea. We don't allow teens to post their emails on the board for a reason, so, putting it in your profile does not make sense. Please remove it. Livy is perfectly able to post information about Hannah Kahn's company here on the board if she would like to, although not on this Resume thread.

I have another resume-related question. When I was younger I took dance classes at a number of small, local dance studios before switching to the more ballet-oriented, company-associated school I attended during high school. Is it appropriate to list all of these on my resume (for example, the 2 years i spent at a local studio when I was 4-5 years old doing pre-ballet)? I don't want to take up too much room on my resume with less relevant information.

Pre-ballet classes are really not necessary to list on a resume.
