diski Posted August 12, 2013 Report Share Posted August 12, 2013 Sorry if this is a double post, but I don't see a thread for this school (kind of suprised). I am looking for anyone with experience with this school's year round program. We live 40 to 55 miles in every direction from the best ballet school choices in the area, with driving times ranging from 50 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes each way. We were already driving to a studio that was about 40 miles away, but had a good ride sharing schedule with several other families that made things a little easier. That studio is not a great fit for my dd anymore, so we are thinking about a change. My dd just turned 15 and went to her first away SI at Milwaukee Ballet School, she really enjoyed it. Her current studio situation was bumming her out so much that during this past spring she actually thought she didn't want to dance at all anymore, and going to this SI from the first day, she fell in love with ballet all over again, realizing it was the studio and not losing her love of dance that made her want to quit. This is going to be very hard on our family, because it will mean that I will not be home any day after school till about 10 at night, but we need to do something. What level do students typically start out in (she just turned 15), do they all typically start in the pre-academy level before moving to academy one or two? Also how many performance opportunities are there per year? And what is the atmosphere of the school including the class sizes for the 3 academy levels? Also does anyone know about the graduating class from this last spring-how many kids got apprenticeships or contracts, etc... and where did they go? Any other information or comments would be that you may have would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
