angabaralina Posted August 20, 2008 Report Share Posted August 20, 2008 Good afternoon, I am new here and have spent some time reading all the great stuff but still haven't found quite the right answer. My daughter will be 6 soon and is starting her 4th year of ballet. The school where she takes classes has an age range that is appropriate for each class. She is currently in a class for 4 to 6 year olds. I asked whether she should continue in the same class just because of her age or move on because of the amount of years she has been in ballet. Her teacher said it would be fine for her to move up to the next level which is for 7 to 9 year old. She has taken some sample classes with the older group and has done fine. After observing the the higher level class the only thing that I am worried about is whether some of the things they are learning in the higher level will affect her feet or body development in later years by starting them too soon. Am I being overly worrisome? Quote Link to comment
