LabGranny Posted July 29, 2010 Report Share Posted July 29, 2010 DD(almost 16) is attending a company associated school for their summer intensive. During the year she is attending a small studio. She says that she is getting the same corrections at the Si that she gets with her home studio, with only a couple of minor differences. She really feels like the training is as good with her current school. The advantages I see of the small school are: 1. The price- It cost substantially less. We are a one income family and she gets a partial scholarship where she is now. 2. Small class size- there are usually areound eight in her class. One of the ladies used to dance professionally, so she is wonderful for DD to watch and train with. 3. More performance opportunities. 4. Teaching opportunities- she was asked last year to help with the younger classes. If she were to switch to the company school, what kind of advantages would she have? When going to audition for college or companies, how much attention do they pay to where they trained. One thought that DD has had is that she stay where she is for now and then hopefully go to the company school as a senior. Are there any advantages to switching her junior year? Any thoughts?
