I will be a BFA Dance major in college. I am trying to choose from several offers. Is it reasonable for me to request/demand to take a few dance classes on my college visit to allow me to gauge the fit?

I have been accepted to several really good college dance programs and am still waiting on audition results from a few others. Once I have all the offers, my parents want us to visit the primary contenders. When I go to do these official campus visits, is it reasonable for me to request/demand the opportunity to participate in a few dance classes on my visit (or at least sit in on and watch if their is a liability concern by the college)? My dad said it is analogous to a college football recruit at least getting to sit in on watching formal practices to see how the coaches coach, which he knows is routinely allowed. #dance #dance-education

I am intending to pursue a BFA in Dance as my major in college with a minor Arts Management or Business with a career goal to dance professionally. How critical is it to attend a college in New York City vs great universities in places like Texas or Ohio?

My career vision is to dance professionally, including opportunities like a professional dance company, Broadway shows, LA productions, or traveling touring companies. I realize I cannot dance forever, so I would then want to transition into a role either as a choreographer, setter, or in the marketing or management area of the industry. I have been accepted to some great universities in my home state of Texas as well as Ohio, PA and VA. I have also been accepted by some good schools in New York City, but they are not the academic powers that some of the non-NYC universities are, but I feel like I almost have to go to one of the NYC colleges because of their dance department reputations and being in NYC for college to give me the best shot at achieving my career goals. So, is it really THAT critical to go to college in NYC if you want to dance professionally? #dance #dance-education

What classes are the best classes to take in college if i want to own my own dance school?

I am a dancer and I've been dancing since age 4. I love dance and i love children. I feel that dancing is a positive way of expression. I live in Far Rockaway, Queens and not a lot of people have lots of money to pay for professional dance classes for there children so they don't introduce it to them. I want to make affordable dance classes for my neighborhood and create more change in my community. #business #finance #management #entrepreneurship #dance #dance-education #ballet

If I have spent more than 7 years away from dance, but I still love dancing is it worth it to go after a career in dance even though I'll be behind all of those people who've danced for over 15 years straight?

One of the very first things I started doing as a child was dancing and it's always been something that I've thoroughly enjoyed and allowed me to express myself and just be me, but I haven't danced in nearly 8 years. I just want advice on whether or not I should pursue dance as a career or if I should just do it recreational because I don't want to look back later in life and regret not pursuing something that I've always loved even though I've grown to enjoy other things that aren't dance. #artist #dance #college-student #dance-education

What should I do after I graduate college?

I have big dreams of becoming a professional dancer who books, tours, music videos, award shows, musicals, and any other kind of shows you can think of. I'm going to study interdisciplinary arts with specialization in arts leadership in Seattle University where I can learn about both the creative and business side of the dance industry, however I would really like to be a part of the industry as soon as possible so i'm thinking about attending auditions after I graduate. I don't know if this is smart planning for my future though because I know that in our world today, it is important to continue your education from there. However, i'm also afraid that once I'm done with school that I would be too old for the dance industry or not what people are looking for in a dancer anymore. Any advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. #dance #dance-education #hip-hop-dance #creative-arts #musicals

What is the best path to become a professional dancer, auditioning for a company at 18 or going to a college dance program?

Most dancers I know feel that the best path to a professional dance career is to go straight out of high school to a company. I'm not sure I'm ready for that, and I also would like to go to college. I'm afraid that if I do, though, I might be making it more difficult for me to get into a professional company, because it seems to be "expected" that if you are "good enough" you should be going straight to a company. Going to college first seems to be looked down on and makes it seem like you aren't really the top dancer they want. I would like information from someone who has done both, so I have some insight into what to do. #college #career-counseling #arts #dance #performing-arts #dance-education
