Natalie Vestergom's insight:

Most Americans have probably heard of the famous reality TV show “Dance Moms”. This show is based on the lives of dancers who attend the Abby Lee Dance Company. However, what you see on TV is not what the school is really like. The show only shows you a portion of the school. If you are a dancer and wish to be on one of the competition teams, you must audition. However, you do not need to compete in order to start a serious career. The company offers pre-professional programs and most of the dancers can receive scholarships to other dance schools and companies. At their recitals, people will hide in the audience who are secretly talent scouts and talk to the dancers on the spot and ask them about their career. They will ask how serious you are and if you see your future as dance. If you answer yes, chances are you will become a professional dancer and start your career now. Who knows? The next Broadway star could be practicing right now! Will it be you? Sign up for classes and find out!

Too Late to Become a Professional Dancer? | Dance Advantage

Too Late to Become a Professional Dancer? | Dance Advantage | What are the chances of an amateur dancer making it on broadway or having any serious career in performing? | Scoop.it
Dancing professionally means you have to pursue dance with your full time and attention. If what you really wanted to do is dance, you'd already be doing it.
Natalie Vestergom's insight:

According to Nichelle Strzepek, it’s never too late to follow your dreams, especially when that dream is dance. Many people address her with certain questions along the lines of, “Am I too old to become a professional dancer?” Her answer to these questions are always no. She realizes that just because you are older does not mean you aren’t capable of being an amazing dancer and performing on Broadway. In fact, many of the dancers that have staring roles are older than you think! Nichelle created her program Dance Advantage in 2008 to allow aspiring dancers to come together and discusses with them dance performances and how they can achieve their goals. Her main purpose is to help those who want to do something with their talent, and make sure that she has done a successful job in helping these young men and women. If you’re having any difficulties with striving in your profession, just go to Nichelle and I assure you she will make a significant impact on your life.
