DancesInHerSleep Posted June 24, 2004 Report Share Posted June 24, 2004 I know this sounds odd but my DD (10 years-old) has absolutely NO trouble at all when it comes to knowing her left and right as long as she's NOT dancing. Put her in class, and she has a heck of a time! It's even a little amusing right now, but I'm worried she's going to get very frustrated. One mother suggested looking in the mirror might be what's confusing her, but I'm not convinced that's it. If she's learning choreography she eventually "learns" which foot and which arm she should be using, but in class her teachers are constantly having to tell her to change feet or arms or to face the other direction. She's very aware of it and tries to catch herself. And sometimes when she is correct, she assumes that she's wrong and automatically changes. I know that every child goes through this to some degree, but mine is definitely having more trouble than most. But it absolutely blows me away that it's ONLY when she's dancing! How common is this?
