Life post grad is difficult for a dancer. The only way to get work is to keep your technique up by taking classes, but you don't have money to take those classes and the cycle continues. Without dance in my life, I lose sight of my goals. It is as if dancing provides the clarity that I need to see the things most important to me.
Tomorrow I am auditioning for a tuition assisted program at a studio near my apartment. I am hoping that this audition goes well and I am able to plug into the dance community here in Chicago. If it doesn't go well, at least I get to take two classes for free. A win/win situation!
I am trying to keep my head up through an unstable and trying part of my career. Forward is the only way to go!
