DanceMind: Dear Janie -- Life and Decisions
Well this news certainly adds flame to the fire ...
I am happy to hear that you spent some time with your grandparents. Being a highly disciplined dancer and possessing a strong work ethic, it can be difficult to get away for a visit with family. I am sure they appreciated seeing you. Touching in with your family is very nourishing.
A prestigious school - hmm-mm.
Why do you think this company hired you? Did they speak to you about that? I understand that you are talented and adorable, pretty and smart... however, I can imagine they do receive applications from "all over the world." Believe me I am not questioning your ability, or professional readiness or anything like that. What do you know now about 'foreign ballet companies and company jobs?' This one company in particular?
What did they say to you? Maybe I missed this in a previous discussion.
What would help you to make this decision? What is your time frame to make this decision?
The question is "Should Janie go overseas to work with this foreign ballet company?"
