Jennsnoopy Posted March 28, 2019 Report Share Posted March 28, 2019 My DD is almost 14. She loves ballet, even though it’s challenging she has no desire to quit. I have heard that in the early and mid teen years there can be a lot of attrition from ballet studios, especially during the high school years. Why is this? It’s hard for me to fathom dancers that have spent so many years working so hard just up an quit once they are in high school. I was speaking with a more experienced parent whose multiple daughters have danced through high school and beyond and she was saying that she has seen it time and time again. She told me not to be surprised if half of my daughter’s class drops out in the next few years. That surprises me because right now all my daughter’s classmates seem in it for the long haul.
