carwalsh Posted May 22, 2008 Report Share Posted May 22, 2008 Hi, I'm not only new here, I am new to the whole dance forum arena. I come from a small town in the west of Ireland and I have a 12 year old boy who LOVES to dance. He currently does Hip Hop (his favourite) and Ballet and is heading to London to do a week of contemporary dance in the summer. Problem is that all he wants to do is dance and I have no idea how to direct him as we aren't dancers in our family - mind you his Dad is a superb musician and I personally think dance is quite similar! He has a natural talent and is extremely agile and flexible. Currently he is the only boy in his ballet school and he gets teased at ballet by the girls and everyone at school!! We are very fortunate in that his attitude is that he just loves to dance and he is not giving it up. He is quite certain that he wants to dance as a career and given that he has not many options open to him where we live I have no idea where to start to help him. There are no other types of dance classes available to him at the moment and his ballet teacher lacks focus.. any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. My primary concern is that he has the tools available to him to do what he so badly wants to do! Quote Link to comment
