Joffrey E-Mail Received


Recommended Posts

Out of the clear blue sky I just received an email that they have accepted my daughter as a trainee.

 

"Dear Dancer

 

Congratulations, you have been selected to be a Year Round Trainee.

 

We have 10 positions remaining in the program for new students with scholarships and financial aid available.

 

This is a very limited opportunity being sent to less than 200 dancers out of 12,000.00 that have qualified over the past three years.

 

The program begins September 14th, 2011 thru June 1st, 2012."

 

It goes on for a bit with registration info. Anyway, we think my dd may have auditioned for this SI three years ago...so I'm truly wondering about the selectivity of this program. Perhaps it's some unfortunate glitch in their automatic email.

I would call the school. They did indeed send the same email last year to ALL registered SI students. There were a few broken hearts when the school sent "sorry we made a mistake" emails to many of the students,

Well that's just terrible! I realize that I should've put my last post on the Joffrey trainee thread, but now I'm afraid to double post, so if the moderators want to move it I'll leave that up to them. I'm sorry that I misplaced my post. My dd has plans for the fall, I just thought I'd give others a heads up.

My daughter got the same email today. She auditioned 3 years ago also. She is 16. Wonder what's up?

One of my dancers recevied this e-mail from the Joffrey school in NY. We both find it odd since she didn't audition for their summer intensive this last year, but auditioned the year before, was accepted, but did not attend. We are not sure what to make of it. I was wondering if anyone else has received it.

I am the Executive Director of the school and want to personally congratulate you on this achievement. We have developed dancers for 60 years and are extending to you the opportunity to be a Trainee.

You are amongst a very small few that have been chosen for the Year Round Trainee Program. You have demonstrated exceptional talent and potential that needs to be nurtured and developed to the next level.

 

I will be personally calling you to discuss this opportunity if you respond and request a call. Tariqua Nehisi is the Trainee Program Manager and can schedule a call with myself or Davis Robertson."

 

It also doesn't seem a "limited opportunity" with 200 invitations sent out. :thumbsup:

 

Edited: Some how this double posted, please remove one.

I did not receive this e-mail, but one of the girls in my level at my summer intensive did. She went to the Joffrey Ballet summer intensive several summers ago, but has not been there since.

As I posted in the other Joffrey thread, this same thing happened last year. It was an error. Obviously the person sending the mass emails does not know how to send to specified email addresses. There were a lot of very hurt feelings last year and you would have thought they's have gotten it right this year.

Ok wait, someone sent emails to people not even at the SI this year? One of you with copies, please call the office to let them know what they have done. This is ridiculous and especially to happen 2 years in a row but unless someone lets them know that not only did it go out to current students but former students then they can't correct it.

We also got the same email. DD has not even attended their SI. Her only connection with them is auditioning for their SI this past winter. Over the past two months, they have also sent us two packets promoting the program, also saying she was accepted for the year-round program. It will be interesting to see if they really do call...

I just got an email from Chris D'Addario of Joffrey and the email for my daughter was for real. Here is what the email said: "Great questions, [DD] did audition for the summer program within the last two years and scored very well. We keep our records and inform potential students when something is available". So - we will look over the information...any one else hear back?
