kobbymom Posted August 8, 2010 Report Share Posted August 8, 2010 My dd just turned 14. All she thinks about is dance and she doesn't have back up interests. She is smart but doesn't put the effort into academics because it is all dance. She is usually liked in her classes because she works hard, is serious and takes all corrections and applies them, but she still never gets into the elite groups or parts, other girls her age are both in higher classes and lower classes. I think she looks beautiful dancing, but what do I know. Her dance school is excellent and several girls have made top companies including NYCB and ABT, but it is still a business that thrives on convincing me to sign her up for increasingly more classes (last year was 11 hours). I have other kids, and can't figure out how to decide how much to put toward dance, if I just knew she had a future it might be easier. Quote Link to comment
