LauraR Posted September 18, 2007 Report Share Posted September 18, 2007 Before I begin, let me clarify by stating that I believe that ballet is foundational for other forms of dance such as jazz, modern, etc. My 11yo dd is at a pre-pro school and we are very happy there. She is serious about her dance training right now but somehow I don't picture her as a ballerina. *If* she were to pursue another interest such as Broadway/music theater or ballroom when she gets older, would ballet have been the proper training for her? Is there something else to supplement? She does take one tap class offered at our studio and just adores it. The girls at her level take a funky jazz class, but starting at Level 4 and up, 'jazz' is more of a modern class. She has also taken a Flamenco class before and enjoyed it very much. Then she comes back and says she loves the discipline and work of ballet. I think she just loves to move! Quote Link to comment
