Guest happycc Posted June 22, 2004 Report Share Posted June 22, 2004 For awhile now my son has said there is nothing he would do more than dancing and performing on stage. Given that he is only 9yrs old and to be sure of that...how do I truly know he has caught that dance bug and will stick with it in the long run? Next year on top of taking two ballet class, a tap, a jazz and gymnastics class he wants to take Ballroom. Should I let him? He has also announced that in a few years he wants to start TAing so he can earn free lessons. Since he is a creature of habit and routines how do I know this something he truly likes or that he is stuck in the routine and habit of doing it. He also thrilled about the idea of winning a scholarship through the dance studio where a specially chosen student can take unlimited amount of classes without having to pay. Finances are tough for us but my husband and I want to be prepared for the expenses that might take place in preparing someone going into a profession of dance. The dance studio mentioned that for boys-if they dance for more than three years and very cooperative about it that is usually an indication that they have gotten the dance bug. Usually by the third year boys who don't want to do it will start giving mom, dad, teacher, director problems or indications that their hearts aren't in it. What do the rest of you think?
