JosephineM Posted October 8, 2011 Report Share Posted October 8, 2011 I've been reading the posts about girls being excused from P.E. class. From what I can tell, the main reason is regarding running. That since most girls "run like dancers - turned out" there is a possible risk of injury to the knees (and maybe the hips?) And contact sports like soccer may be dangerous, so you don't really want them in those. Here's my problem.....I asked my academic school about being excused, and my request was denied. I'm now wondering if I need to appeal the decision, or just leave it be. So, my question is this...is it really necessary to be excused from P.E. at this age/level, or can my daughter continue to participate and I shouldn't be worried about the risks? DD is age 11 (6th Grade) and her ballet schedule is 4 days per week (4 technique of 1 1/2 hours each and 2 pointe of 1/2 hour each, so 7 hours total). No other dance classes, but now adding Nutcracker rehearsals. Quote Link to comment
