Why I Chose Juilliard
1. The location
2. Broadway (shows like Hamilton...go see it)
3. In a dance class of 24, there is a lot of personal attention
4 The dance scene in New York
So. Many. Dance. Companies.
There are also lots of open dance classes in New York
5. Notable Alumni
6. I’ve always loved penguins. (the Juilliard mascot)
Beyond this list of reasons, I chose Juilliard because it is a space where I am able to constantly nurture my art for four years. It is a safe environment where I have the ability to make mistakes, and push myself beyond barriers that once held me back.
The school is brimming with talent, giving me a constant source of inspiration. Juilliard is not the right place for everyone. Never before have I spent so much time in one building. However, if you are willing to dedicate yourself to the process, it is so worth it.
