Hi all! Been hanging around for a few years watching & cheering everyone on. I have one of those kids planning for a BFA in MT for the last 10 years, and I’m like many of you - the parent here to enable whatever passion the kid wants to follow.
Well. We hit a very unexpected speed bump in that she is not sure she wants to pursue a BFA in MT any more. It is hard to tell if she is just burnt out or really ready to move on. She is a top scholar as well, and could easily pursue something else successfully. There is a part of me that is extremely relieved at the idea of a “safer” route, and a part of me that is disappointed that we might not go through with this arduous next year (that’s bizarre to type - but we’ve been preparing for SOOOOOOO long).
So now, I’m throwing my energy into understanding other options (she’s the baby). Are there schools that offer a minor in MT for non theatre/dance majors? That doesn’t seem like a thing that is doable - but I thought I’d ask.
And anyone else been here and have any advice - please send it along.
