BalletJewel Posted August 25, 2006 Report Share Posted August 25, 2006 Hi Everyone, I guess I could write about a six page document on all the advice I need. But I will start small. My dd is 13 and has always loved ballet. She has been dancing since age of 2. She has never faltered on her dream. We are at our 4th studio. She's been with this current teacher for 4 years now. My first problem I'll address is that I know what this teacher has told me about my daughter but she has never been anywhere else. She had done a local performance weekend with her company (where other companies come to take class and perform) but you do not get any feed back there. This teacher is on staff also at a professional school in the area teaching. We have never done a SI. I know it's time but there is so much out there that I do not where to start. I've also been thinking about trying to find classes at other studio's for her to get a look at what is out there. My biggest stumbling block is that everytime I try to bring these things up with her teacher, she is very negative. Nothing seems to be the right answer. I know that she would like to keep my dd safely tucked inside her studio but I just wander how I should filter this negativity. Does she truly have my daughters interest at heart? My husband and I are both willing to do what is necessary for her to achieve her dreams. I would like her to get out there and make sure this is truly what she wants. UGH!!!!! I don't know where to begin. Any advise on this will be greatly appreciated. I hope I'm not rambling to much but there is so much that I need to think about that I get lost. Thanks so much! *edited by momof3 Quote Link to comment
