Jdhowellco Posted February 17, 2008 Report Share Posted February 17, 2008 For the past 3 years my DD has gone away to a summer program, but this year due to a recent health crisis she just isn't strong enough to audition. At first she seemed to accept it, but today she had a melt down. She feels like she will never get back what she lost and that all her chances are pretty much over. She finally started back to classes a few weeks ago and pointe just today, and while she has lost some strength her teachers were surprised and happy to see just how well she did after such a long absence. I know she will work hard but with her illness it's not going to be an easy road. I want to be encouraging but realistic at the same time. I've always heard that it takes a long time to recover from any absence in dance. Any advice? Quote Link to comment
