Danny Posted March 11, 2005 Report Share Posted March 11, 2005 I'm not a parent but I've been asked to sort of mentor a young dancer. We've been the only guys in our respective classes, and the two of us account for 100% of the male dancers at our studio. This kid is in his early teens and have been dancing for about five years. His technique is probably where it should be but he is very shy and dances "small" according to our teacher. Recently, he can only make it to the evening Teen/Adult classes which is generally quite challenging. This has been particularly trying on his confidence. Originaly, my job was to coach him on partnering for the spring recital but our teacher thinks what he really needs is a male role model or just a friend. This is partially attributed to the fact that his father is battling an illness. I was curious if anyone had similar experience. I would appreciate the insight, advice, etc. Thanks.
