sparky Posted July 21, 2011 Report Share Posted July 21, 2011 Hoping to get some advice. My DD will be a senior in HS and has recently been told she is more natural at contemporary. She doesn't have the natural ballet body or hyper extended knees but has done pretty well getting into top levels at top SI's. Now she is at the age where she needs to know which direction to head towards. My question is are there any colleges or companies that still do a lot of ballet classes but do more contemporary pieces for rep? She does not want to do all true modern classes (Limon, Graham, etc) , but has been told by several she is really good at contemporary. Thought contemporary ballet may be a great road for her, but really dont know of any program besides Lines? She still loves classical but is starting to think its just not in the cards since she is fighting a lot of the "unnatural" muscle tendencies to make it into a good classical company. Or does anyone know of medium sized classical companies that do a lot of contemporary too? Any advice would be so appreciated! Quote Link to comment
