1. "RE: audition?"
In response to message #0
Personally I don't like the competitions, apart from a few prestigious ones, you can enter when you are older.
I know in your country there is a lot to do about competitions and I can't understand this.
Ballet is an art-form and it's never fair to compare young dancers in a competition.
At your age it's important to focus on your training and be carefull that you don't get injured. If you are in a grow-spurt and you are demanding too much of your body, an injury can take you months to recover.
Your teachers know this and advise what is the best for you,
please listen to them ! And I know your school is extremely strict in this case.
