Sorry your DD is upset. She is still very young in terms of development both physically and psycologically. It might be worth looking at something like cechetti associates who seem to have younger children. I tell my DD that learning to deal with dissapointment is part of dance training. It just means that the dancer is just not ready yet for that particular activity/part yet. Children develop and get stronger at different ages as with other activities. We have all seen the children that are reading at 3 years old while others take up to 7+ years. It is the same with dancing. If they learn to think they win some/lose some it will help them be strong enough to take rejection for auditions if they want to work professionally in later life. To be honest, I think it is us parents that find it more difficult to deal with!
