Ballet after dance college


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a strange question or not but we often hear of dc doing ballet school 16-18/19 then going on to MT courses for various reasons but I just wondered if those who go to places like Bird, Laines, LSC etc. ever get to join ballet companies or use their ballet skills much afterwards. I appreciate that they are not doing anywhere near the same level of training as ballet school  so does the ballet training simply serve as a method for improving overall technique?

Gary Avis certainly did. He went to Bird College at 16 to do musical theater and was offered a place at RBS after 2 years ! The rest is history. I have no idea how common this is, but I think it may be more possible for boys as i understand girls start college at 16.
