SDI Audition

In looking ahead to Evelyn's options for summer ballet, she had two options:  a six-week class at her current ballet studio (one and a half hour class, three days a week), or a two-week summer dance intensive at Festival Ballet in Providence, Rhode Island (eight hours a day, five days a week).  After some encouragement, Evelyn decided to audition for the summer dance intensive.  Evelyn's audition portfolio consisted of a registration form, photo waiver, resume and photos.
Evelyn's audition was this past Sunday.  The audition was for ballet students ages 9-12.  I reminded Evelyn that she would be one of the youngest dancers at the audition and to try not to worry about skills she doesn't know yet.  After all, she wouldn't need to attend a summer program if she already knew everything!
The audition lasted an hour and a half.  I have never seen Evelyn so worn out from a ballet class!  (The picture below was taken before the audition...)  But guess what?  We got an email this afternoon, congratulating and welcoming Evelyn to the summer dance intensive!  We are so proud of our little ballerina Peanut, and we can't wait to see how much she grows this summer.  :)
