ballet 24x7 Posted September 19, 2006 Report Share Posted September 19, 2006 Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this....my DD#1 attended her first SI this past summer. The program is well known and she attended only a two week session (first time away from home). DD had a lovely experience...she enjoyed having a variety of teachers, was exposed to a different style of training other than her home studio, made lots of ballet friends, and generally tested her wings on her own. Definitely helped her confidence. However, as levels were large and placement is what it is, don't know how much her dancing actually improved. Wondering if she would have been better staying home under the watchful eye of her studio's two main teachers...definitely would have received more personal attention and caring eyes on her. (She did train with them some before leaving for SI). Granted, two weeks is a very short time. Just thinking of next year (a ways off, I know)...wondering what wisdom other BT4D parents' might share.
