finallykf Posted September 15, 2010 Report Share Posted September 15, 2010 My son will be 9 this summer which will be old enough for the young dancer "summer intensive" programs for the Bolshoi Ballet which is held in Connecticut and ABTs program. Has anyone's son had any experience with these programs? The photo gallery for the Bolshoi program shows only 2 boys. I didn 't know if that is because they are so incredibly picky that they only accepted 2 boys or if they had very few boys audition. Also, the boy in the photo for the ABT program looks like one of the boys that is playing Billy Elliot in the Chicago production. My son is doing well for his age but not THAT well!! Just wanting to know what to expect. Regardless, the audition experience alone will be good for him even if he doesn't get in. Oh, we are also interested in the Joffrey program, especially since it is not far from home but there is very little information on their website. Any information about these programs or any others for a 9 year would be greatly appreciated. Luckily my husband's company has offices in many large cities so he would be able to travel there for business and we could stay in his hotel during the SI to keep costs down for programs that are not residential. Thank you! Quote Link to comment
