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.
