slhogan Posted January 11, 2006 Report Share Posted January 11, 2006 I appreciate the input I got when I was trying to decide on a studio for my son. If you don't mind one more question... At my 7 year old son's former studio (that we left last week), part of the dance routine included picking up a girl, turning around in a circle while holding her, then putting her down. She was basically in the splits and he was holding her at waist height with his hands under her thighs. The girl was a little smaller than him (my son is 50" and 48 lb-- really skinny, but still pretty strong). The move was very cute and a real crowd pleaser. I've been reading past posts on this board and have seen some comments on not doing any partnering until a boy is past puberty and has more strength. Can anyone offer me any insight on the type of lifting I just described? Is it okay? Is it dangerous? Even though we are at a different studio (and the new studio takes a classical approach to ballet training) I want to informed on this subject in case it comes up again. Thanks! Quote Link to comment
