Guest PAmom Posted September 4, 2003 Report Share Posted September 4, 2003 Reading through the "Balancing work and 'dance mom' duties" thread makes me realize there are a lot of parents who have children as students or new company members living away from home. I know many of us have dealt with the month or 2 of having our dancers away at an SI but I am specifically talking about only seeing a child for a few weeks every YEAR. Let's share how we are (or aren't) coping with having our kids move away while we creatively support them on their journey into the pro dance world. What are some supportive long distance strategies you are coming up with for yourself, family and your child? Any creative solutions for not being able to attend performances our kids are in across country (or another continent)? Do you send flowers? Watch a ballet video during their performance and "cheer on" the performer who is dancing your child's role? Have you run into any problems with health insurance and how did you solve them? What bumps in the road were you able to soften for your child as they made the transition into a company? I will share later but wanted to start this topic while I had a moment. t Quote Link to comment
