That is true, and I didn't consider that. Although if I go to school around where the dance studio I love to go to is, I have a good shot at going to a good college/going to a good dance studio (I guess although a lot of dance instructors are good, these guys/girls are top notch).Also with dance and music, honestly speaking this may be the one and only time in your life that you have this opportunity to study these subjects in depth, with academic rigor, in a relatively safe and stable environment.
By the way, what type are you?
And taking a lot of classes shouldn't be a problem for me- I have so many interests! Which I kind of feel is part of my problem.
Well, as far as in school subjects go, I should look at science and language (definitely language, because I love it). I think for me with language, I have a relatively easy time learning it, but not drive really.I also like to study dance and music, but unless you are in a full time college there is no way to duplicate that 360 learning environment and rigor and accountability. I have taken music, dance, and language classes after undergrad but I sorely regret not taking more language classes. It is painful and expensive and often times kinda shoddy trying to learn these things outside that environment - unless you are really good at being self-taught. Again, that undergrad environment when you are a "traditional language age" is the best way to do it and build that foundation.
Soooo, yeah, just do it. You don't have to worry about what's practical and sacrifice your interests etc. just yet.
Maybe for now I should just try to balance school/dance/music. I think dance and music will be things I will always study on my own.
