Ballet Instagram account

DD has Instagram and uses it for day to day life just uploading pictures of her and her friends and some photographs she's taken. However, recently she's realised many of her friends have a separate account based on mainly dance and she wanted to make one. Though the only problem is she's not sure it's a good idea due to the fact that she may get a little teased at school for it. Also, none of her friends at her dance school have it, only her dance friends outside of her local school.

Does anyone have any experience with an account similar to this? any comments about it would be fab! Thanks in advance!

Hi my primaballerina, my daughter has Instagram and uploads a few dance photos along with the other rubbish a ten year old

Might put on, I do monitor what she is doing on it. It has been a great way to keep on touch with other JA's from around the

Country and she follows lots of interesting dance accounts. She was over the moon to get a follow back from her favourite ballerina too. Hope that helped xx

personally i won't let my dd have a public account until she's quite a bit older as there is now the private messaging facility and also the content is indexed by search engines. It's bad enough on a private account as people can say stuff in a way that they wouldn't do in real life.

 

she posts about dance a lot with her real life friends and those who are interested like and comment and those that aren't interested ignore it.

 

I can understand the teasing or not quite understanding things from non dance friends though. We had an incident about a year ago where an older sister of a friend of dd's took objection to a dance clip that dd posted and sent her a pm calling her an unpleasant name! We had to make sure that privacy settings were set in a particular way but people can always screen shot and cause upset in a whole load of ways if they really want to :(

 

Having said that there are a lot of under 13's on Instagram and it can be a very easy and friendly way to stay in touch with remote dance friends but I definitely would be monitoring very closely :)

My dd has a dance Instagram account with one of her dancing friends. They just post pictures and videos like slo mo jumps or time lapses of their pointe warmup etc! It is just a bit of fun but me and her mum look at it sometime just to make sure everything is fine but never had any problems
