Europe schools versus Australian Schools

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have opinions on the standard of dancers produced? Is it really worth the effort of moving over to Europe for full time training?

It depends on the school. :)

You can't make generalisations about this, and on Ballet Talk for Dancers we don't do comparisons, because every person has different needs, and deal-breakers.

 

There is lots of information about a lot of schools here in the Ballet Education forums. We suggest you read the relevant threads for the first hand information they offer, and see what things are important to you. YOu can also look at each school's website, see what their graduating dancers go on to do, and find out about curricula and styles of training.

And it depends upon the dancer. If the training is good where you are, stay. If it's meant to be that your child will have a professional career, then it will happen, provided the training is there and the stars are aligned correctly.

 

If the training doesn't work for her, and she's auditioned for a place that speaks to her, and if that place is elsewhere and your family has the means to go, then go. If it's meant to be that your child will have a professional career, then it will happen, provided the training is there and the stars are aligned correctly.

 

We have threads throughout Ballet Talk for Dancers where you will find information from dancers and their parents who did move, and it didn't work out; those who did move, and it did work out; those who couldn't move, and it didn't work out; those who couldn't move and it did work out. The only common thing you will find in these stories is that the proverbial "getting a leg-up" doesn't work, mostly because children who have everything easily given to them cannot survive in the ballet world, because it is tough out there. Those who have had to fight for every pair of pointe shoes, and who have had to survive being the one in the back of the room getting little attention, and who have had to dance parts that others deemed "not worthy" are typically the last ones standing when it comes time to do company auditions.
