Petite_Dancer123 Posted March 16, 2013 Share Posted March 16, 2013 I am 14 years old currently studying GCSEs. I go to a private school (an idependent school that you have to pay for). I do 1 hour and a half of dance a week- includes ballet RAD Grade5 and pointe work (45 minutes each) I can't do anymore dancing because my family are struggling very much to pay for my school. I haven't told this to a lot of people but I want to be a choreographer sooo much! I dance whenever I have spare time, I get involved in any school productions and everyone always tells me I am an amazing dancer! I have high hopes for the future involving dance. I am capable of doing so much better than grade 5. I passed my grade 4 in under a year with a high distinction. My teacher barely ever lets me do anything because she favouritises other girls that have been dancing longer them then therefore I can never show her what I can actually do! All my friends dance almost everyday of the week and I feel left out and become very jealous because I'd love to dance as much as them. Anyway, I can't afford to go to anymore dance classes and even though I am a clever student it is too late to drop out of private school because I am half way through my GCSEs. Even though, I love my school so much, I can never decide. I know that my family really want me to do something academically but I don't. I just want to dance. But I don't know what to do... If I pick dance: Private school education would've gone to waste I don't stand a chance compared to anyone who has a bigger dancing background I can never be safe with dancing If I choose education: I won't have to worry about competing for a job I will do well I will make other people happy. What do I do?! The dance university I want to go to abroad and they only take poeple with experience in modern and ballet. I don't do modern! Are there any dance schools that will understand and give me a discount and realise my full potential. Am I aiming too high? Sorry. -Rant Over- Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
