Career Development Plan - Where do I go from here?

I'm a ballet student and I'm in matric. I recently decided that I want to become a professional ballet dancer. I have absolutely no idea how to pursue my dream. I don't know where to go or what to do. I'll be doing my RAD Intermediate examination in 6 weeks. I've been dancing ballet since I was 3 or 4 years old. I would appreciate any guidance.
Thank you

Dear Eunice,

Thank you for contacting me, it is a pleasure to hear from you.

I also did RAD as a student and it is a beneficial idea as it gives you good discipline and the exams give you a goal to work towards.

Guidance is crucial for every dancer aiming to pursue a professional career, so I strongly suggest you find a mentor and use your ballet teachers to help you further. I will be here to guide you and study through my pages to build your knowledge on dancers.

There are many different stages to becoming a professional ballet dancer and, depending how old you are, each stage must be committed with dedication and hard work.

There are some of the questions you need to ask yourself to make your dreams come true. It is crucial to follow the right steps if you want to become a professional dancer. If you are determined to fulfill your dreams in ballet, then follow the personal development plan which are the gradual stages to becoming a professional dancer.

Best Wishes,
