Ginniathezinnia Posted September 20, 2011 Report Share Posted September 20, 2011 I am looking at going to school as a dance major and will be 21 in November. I was concerned that I would be too old to apply for a lot of scholarships or even the dance programs themselves at this age, considering I've had spotty training with a lot of breaks due to some emotional and mental health issues. Well another teacher at the studio I teach preschool classes at told me that she went to major in dance long after she reached my age. My boss tells me I still have a very fair chance. Has anyone else started college late and what were your experiences with it? Did it make things more difficult? I feel like school would be a better choice for me first as I have minimal company experience (7 months in a student company) and my ultimate goal is to teach, but I would like to dance as a professional for a few years while I may still be able.
