Hi ! My name is Sidonie, I am a 15 years old ballerina and next year, I will integrate the National Conservatory of Paris. I was born with a malformation/deformation at the left hand and I haven’t got the end of my fingers. Some schools and people think that my malformation is not compatible with ballet, but I can do everything like normal people, my hand isn’t a problem ! I have auditioning for some school this year, go every time on finals but wasn’t accepted after medical test, because of my hand.
My dream, since my 7 years old, is to dance professionally in an international ballet company and to prove that handicap like mine aren’t problems for to do ballet.
The National Conservatory is a really good school, but I know that with my hand, dance professionally in France will be impossible ( people are not enough opened to see a ballet dancer who isn’t “perfect” ) so I have to find an international school who can accept me and my handicap, and find a financial help to my parents !
I really hope that you can help me to achieve my dreams !
