rokmiller Posted September 23, 2004 Report Share Posted September 23, 2004 (edited) I am posting this for some advice. My daughter is 12 years old and recently attended UBA's intensive on full scholarship. She was asked to attend the year round on a half scholarship, but we declined because I felt she was too young and I wasn't sure about her attending an "all ballet school". I also felt she could get enough instruction from her regular ballet school and would benefit from the performances they hold during the year. My problem is this: since her return from UBA she feels her teacher is ignoring her. She never asked my daughter about her camp experience and has stopped correcting her or giving her any feedback. I do know from past experiences with other girls going to UBA's summer intensive, that she does not like the style there and has strong negative opinions about year round schools anywhere and at any age. I'm starting to feel as if maybe I need to "re-think" about where to send my daughter for her training. She is very passionate about dancing and wants very badly to have serious training. My daughter has been told she has natural turnout and beautiful extensions so I feel that if she wants to do this, I would like to give her every opportunity to pursue her dream. Any advice as to when or if a dancer should attend a year round or is it better to provide private lessons with a dance teacher? How would I go about finding a dance instructor to give private lessons? Any advice would be appreciated. Edited September 23, 2004 by rokmiller Quote Link to comment
