tinkrbellfaerie Posted January 24, 2009 Report Share Posted January 24, 2009 I picked my daughter up from ballet tonight, and she was teary all the way home. She says for the past two weeks that she has been looking at herself and that she is "a terrible dancer." It breaks my heart to see her so unhappy. She is in a pre-pro program and has moved up gradually. She is getting lots of corrections from teachers. I've asked her teachers to be candid with me about her prospects since she wants a career in dance. They all say she has a perfect body for ballet and potential and is a hard worker. She got serious about ballet later (amazingly enough after reading about so many getting serious at 10 and under) so she feels she is fighting the clock. She also has grown a good bit taller (5'-7"). How do I help build her confidence? Her pre-pro school is not so great at that. This is the worst time for her crisis in confidence while she is in the midst of auditions! She is beginning to forego them because she thinks she isn't good enough. HELP! I need advice please. Quote Link to comment
