finallykf Posted October 23, 2010 Report Share Posted October 23, 2010 If you have a teen boy dancer who has ever encouraged a younger boy dancer please give him a big hug for me today. The AD at my son's school has decided to move my son up two levels (skipping one level entirely) as he has become very serious about ballet and needs much more of a challenge. Subsequently he is the youngest in class by several years and will need a bit of extra help during class on some things. He is excited but nervous. He is about to start his first class and he kept coming out to ask me if he was going to the right studio, etc - I could tell he was nervous. So right before class I peeked back in the "student only" area to make sure he had made it to the right place and there were four teenage boys talking to him and I could tell they were giving him a pep talk. My son spotted me and came over saying "You're not supposed to be back here!". One of the boys gave me the thumbs up sign and said "We've got him - he's fine." It was so sweet. This is the first time he has been around older boys in class and around boys who take ballet seriously in class. It was so sweet to see the way they all immediately took him under their wing.
