I was just wondering, when you audition for a summer intensive, does the faculty only look for your present abilities, or do they also lay great emphasis on your potential?

Well, that kinda depends a lot on your age, Medora. I think most of us tend to look for potential in 13-15 year olds, but by 16 and above we are looking a bit more at present abilities.

Thank you Mrs. Leigh,

I did not really begin ballet until I was almost fourteen years old. I have been training intensively for the past two years, taking ballet and pointe three nights a week with my school's company rehearsals on the weekends. I turned 16 on Friday, but in the past two years, I have improved tremendously! My teachers are always telling me how much potential I have. I feel that I am doing well, but I think that with more time I could be doing a whole lot better. My dance teacher told me that auditotions are not only about technique, but how you present yourself. Hopefully they will see something special in me.

:(
