Sewlinda Posted January 15, 2008 Report Share Posted January 15, 2008 Hello! My soon to be 11 yo DD will be changing schools in June, just after her recital at the old school. We would change schools sooner, but are competing, and don't want to let the other girls down on our team. The old school isn't exactly a Dolly Dinkle, but has more of a jazz/tap/hip hop focus. My DD has more of an ballet aptitude and interest. She is excited to change in the extreme. It is killing her not to tell her dance buddies! I have read quite a bit on this topic - how to leave gracefully. My daughter still wants to take tap at her old school after she leaves. If she does take tap there, leaving the competition team on good terms is even more important. What is the best way to do this? Is it even a good idea to take a class at the old school? I do believe it helps that we are not switching to a school that competes with the old one- that it is a serious ballet school. I will try to approach it from standpoint that she wants a career in ballet, etc. To be honest, the old school has some other problems, but I have chosen to keep quiet about them. I know they won't be addressed, so there is no point. Any suggestions? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
