balletla Posted June 11, 2013 Share Posted June 11, 2013 Just picking up this from another thread on DaDAs and the press release on the BRB website. One of the dancers at BRB has announce she is leaving to train as a midwife. She went to Elmhurst and has been at BRB for 5 years as an artist.I think it's great that she has been able to make this decision and I wish her the best of luck. I guess what I am wondering though is what would I be thinking as a parent if this was the situation with my child. I would be sad that after all the emotional investment in the world of ballet over the last 13 years that it would be coming to an end for both my child and me. I would be more concerned about my DD though - how do you cope from dancing every day at that level, to virtually nothing overnight? If ballet every day is all you've known for your whole life, how do you make the adjustment mentally and physically when you stop? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
