Twiggy Posted August 2, 2016 Share Posted August 2, 2016 My daughter has been talking to me about wanting to audition for postgraduate contemporary programmes and companies at the end of her training (she's going into second year so there's still a bit of time) however she came home today from a contemporary summer school completely freaked out because she doesn't know how realistic this dream is. She says from watching the strongest in her class and the older ones she thinks she need a lot more experience in contemporary despite being quite strong in it already. The only problem is that her school has a focus on classical ballet with a bit of 'dancey contemporary' as she calls it. I told her that she shouldn't give up on her dreams and dissmiss the opportunities but she replied with 'but the last time I tried that they turned me down' this broke my heart she really had her heart set on a different school but things didn't turn out too badly this way! The problem I have is that if this is the case I really cannot imagine financing another three years after these two but if it is what she wants and needs to have the career she wants I might have to. What I am trying to say is, would it be necessary to undertake another degree in contemporary dance to get into a contemporary postgrad programme or contemporary company? I think I could have written this so it wasn't such a Long rambling mess but right now I'm going crazy! I don't know how these things work...
