Need: NEED: your advice about how to become a professional dance


by Soraya

A friend of mine asked me to post her story in hope of hearing your advice..:-)

I'm 23 and I have just graduated from management university. But I feel I have endless passion for dancing.

I am Iranian and dancing is forbidden in my country (especially for women) so I am not a professional dancer.

I have noticed that almost all of the dance schools need auditioning even for beginners and even for choreography! I don't have the faintest idea about that and I don't know how I should perform and also it is very difficult and costly for me to get a visa for auditions.

Do you know schools that don't need performance in their selection process?!
If not what should I do in auditions??

And what are your suggestions for someone in my situation in general?

I really would like to become a dancer with all of my heart.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
