finallykf Posted August 16, 2010 Report Share Posted August 16, 2010 So after much thought and stress I decided to relax and just let my son do whatever he wants to do. He wants to be a dancer/performer on Broadway. So we are letting him stay at both dance schools - the recreational school where he takes jazz, hip hop, tap, and ballet with the kids on his competition team and the pre-pro ballet school where he takes an all boys class, a class with girls, and a half hour tap class for the first time this year. He also takes a tumbling class at a gym. Happily the pre-pro school has gotten some new boys just a bit younger than my son who is 8. So the pre-pro school is nit happy that my son is taking dance somewhere else which is knew was going to be the case. But yesterday a comment was made about how these new little bits take ballet seriously so they are going to luck my son's ***. Okay, first my son is 8. Do we really need to be talking competitively like that about students? Second, my son DOES take ballet seriously - to the tune of 4 hours a week of ballet alone. Not to mention the additional 6.5 hours of other forms of dance that he takes per week. We decided to let this be his trial year to see what he likes and how much ge can handle. I'm already worried enough about it, the last thing I need is someone telling me that me kid's *** is going to get kicked because if the choice we made. I feel like we have just been kicked out of the "My Son Loves Ballet Club." even though he just got made fun of AGAIN for it today. Quote Link to comment
