Post dance!
just saw the revival..adn it was amazing..i just have a questin about dance in general ..I'm posting it on this forum because it is sort of specific to the show

I am a good dancer..but not super trained/Ive just started taking classes frequently..but I'm worried that once school starts up I wont be able to..I still will probably take 3 classes a week (maybe 4)! but I was wondering if someone started late is it still possible for them to be in a show like "A Chorus Line" or other shows with a LOT of dancing as a dancer character..also I haven't tapped in a while but I'm really good at picking stuff up...especially tap/jazz (ballet is tougher for me to "pick up" as I am more of a "Broadway" type dancer with ballet for fundamentals)so I was wondering what is a good was to learn tap. but I've been focusing a lot on singing and shows lately for experience..si that bad..should I focus mroe on dancing..thanks..and by the way im in my mid teens..and I've had on and off training for years but havent seriously "danced" with a studio since I was 7.

It's possible, but not likely, unless you have a ton of natural talent or keep up your training at a high level. ACL is a tough show, demanding excellent dancing skills and strong vocal skills. Audtions are always very competitve for the female roles. I think you are best of focusing on training unless you want to just have fun doing shows (which is totally fine, because most people will never make a living doing theater).
