dkd Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 Hi all ! I've been reading the threads here for about a week. I've learned a lot already (especially about pointe shoes - DD's going for her first fitting today). I was wondering if your child does any other activites besides dance - music, sports, etc? Anything that takes extra time. I'm at a crossroads with DD and her violin lessons. She seems to be losing interest and with her starting pointe classes, I think she's going to be going to dance more days per week. Which means even less time for practicing her violin. I hate to see her give it up (she's taken lessons for 5 yrs). When I ask her what she sees herself doing when she grows up she immediately says dance. When I ask her if she sees herself playing the violin, she says 'not really'. So, I guess I'm wondering - is it too much to do another activity and be so involved in dance? (DD is almost 12, takes ballet classes 2x's per week and youth ensemble once per week. I think the ballet is going to go up to 3 days per week starting in Aug., but I'm not sure. Her school is not very good at informing us of things unitl the last minute--that's another one of my frustrations ) Quote Link to comment
