Okay, how thin?


Recommended Posts

I just heard from one of the teachers that I am friendly with at my DK's school that the AD was commenting on how some of the older senior girls could stand to lose a few pounds. I don't see which pounds they can lose because they all look pretty thin. My DKs are still young (and one is a boy), and are in good shape so they are not under this scrutiny yet. But as a newbie ignorant dance mom, I would like to know how thin should dancers be? What is the norm? And at what age do you even start "watching" out?

nynydancer, we cannot tell you that. It depends way too much on the body structure as a whole, including height of course, but also bone and muscle structure. It all comes down to what the body looks like, not a number on a scale. This is not a subject we can discuss. Sorry.
