J's callback for Professional Performing Arts School was today. I drove her and B right to the school. The letter said it might take a few hours, so it was easier for B to go today since I had work tonight. It ended up taking over 7 hours. She handed in her academic record, test scores, a 4x6 headshot, and her callback letter before the audition. The callback audition was a couple more intense ballet and modern classes, and for some - an interview. There were about 15-20 in her group and more than half of them were sent home. J and about 6 others made it to the interview stage. They let her down to get something to eat, but she went right back upstairs again - bringing her pizza with her. This interview was based on J's academics. They misplaced her paperwork, so the questions were scattered and the whole thing was a bit rushed. She felt good about all of it, though. As usual, she made friends so the day didn't feel so long. Now we wait about a month.
In other news, Game Day in the West Village was awesome this week. J made more friends and is so excited to know there really are still a LOT of homeschoolers out there her age, lol. I'm planning on being a part of more Manhattan stuff so she gets to see them more often. I scheduled a trip for 7th to 10th graders coming up right here in Queens. J isn't so interested in participating in many homeschool activities and classes anymore, so we just found something interesting and booked one ourselves, lol. If this one goes well, we'll do another one.
