What About College?about college2

Will college interfere with my career plans?

"West Side Story" was Grover's 3rd Broadway show. He was 21 at the time.

Dear Grover,

I'm 13. I live in Michigan and have been dancing for six years. When I'm 18, I'm heading for New York to pursue my dream. I know there are others out there just like me. The competition will be stiff. But I feel I'm up to it.

The problem is my mom thinks I should go for a college degree. She's convinced that when I'm 30 and can't really dance anymore, I'll come back home and open up a studio. She says I'll need a degree to do that. What should I do?

My dream is itching to be fulfilled. I want to go on tour with a group like Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, etc. I'd even like to be in one of those Gap commercials. Should I get a college education and hold back from going to N.Y. until I graduate? Please help me.
