Guest happycc Posted March 26, 2004 Report Share Posted March 26, 2004 I am just so excited that there is actually a place I can talk about these things with other people. Our school have dance performances time to time and my concern has been that my son is often given a solo with these very talented girls surrounding him. For the Nutcracker he was a party guest and in the other nutcracker he was the main character's little naughty brother. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable thinking that they are giving him this solo because he is the only boy in the class. I mean the whole theme of the class's dance would be around this one boy. My son is good but I feel that there may be other girls who might be better and should have a chance to be in the limelight. I wouldn't doubt that other girls and their parents may feel a bit jealous and I don't blame them. The dance studio practically grabs these boys and make them the kind of the place practically. Although the oldest boy dancer at our studio just got into Juliard. So my guess is that he is truly a good dancer and has received good training there. He does strut around the dance studio though thinking he is the kind of the roost. My son and the few younger boys-three of them look up to him. Does anyone else feel the same about this?
