Guest hesterlover1 Posted October 20, 2002 Report Share Posted October 20, 2002 I haven't been here in a while... Anyway, I am in need of some help!! I'm in the process of beginning to sort through colleges, and am checking out as many as possible. My question is, how is the ballet at Boston University?? I'm really interested in the school as far as academics and programs, and it seems like it would be a perfect fit for me, EXCEPT that the ballet program is making me pause. I looked it up online and from the descriptions it doesn't sound very promising. I was wondering if Miss Leigh, Major Johnson or anyone else here knows anything about the program at BU or the faculty... Margot Parsons is the advanced ballet teacher; technique is offered 3 days a week and pointe is offered the other two. Also, if their dance program doesn't turn out to be too strong, do you think it would be feasible to dance independent of the university, with other schools in the city? Boston is a big center for dance, or at least that's the impression I've gotten...so I'm wondering what other options I might have in the area. Boston Ballet probably wouldn't work out because it's a full time program and I don't know if going to college and dancing with the BB's school would work...although I guess I still should look into it. ANYWAY....sorry this is so long winded. I would REALLY REALLY appreciate any help and info. about this!!! Thank you very much!!! Quote Link to comment
