I (Gina) have been doing a lot of dance related stuff in the last six months or so. I've trained in ballet since I was seven, and for many years dreamed of being paid to dance. In December 2007 I decided to give a professional career one last shot (ballerinas have very short shelf lives-- most don't dance full time past 35).
So I got myself into class a little (ok, a lot) more often, did some research on ballet/contemporary troupes, and proceeded to audition for about ten companies that fit this description:
- Not huge (between ten and twenty dancers)
- Exists in a state that Casey would be willing to move to/live in
- Repertory contains both ballet and contemporary styles
- Might possibly hire me!
Below are some favorite pictures I used for my resume portfolio.
