Rose22 Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 Apologies in advance as I am new today to balletco hopefully I will learn my way around soon:) My question is regarding my 8 yr old daughter. She started life very differently from other girls as she spent the early year poorly and after recovering and missing so much of school and building friendships struggled socially. In order to get her back on her feet and start building strength, our specialist at the hospital reccomended physio and the possibility of a gentle dance class I.e ballet. She joined a class of girls of whom she had never met and fell head over heals in love with her weekend classes. That was three years ago and brings tears to my eyes when I now think how much ballet has enriched and played an enormous change in our precious little girl.... She is now quietly very confident, healthy, strong and continues to inspire ME constantly Anyway... (Sorry makes me emotional haha) she seems to breath dance, it has become part of who my little girl is. I'm sure this makes perfect since to a lot of you but to others I know, they have no uderstanding. She takes x2 45 min classes a week and has just taken her grade 2 exam RAD Her teacher is very proud of her and our heart couldn't be prouder BUT.... Knowing 0% about ballet I'm wondering how I can best help to progress her? Any advice will be much appreciated Keeping her still proves so difficult at home, it's constant...ballet even at the dinner table haha I've never known anything like it but at the same time do not want to get carried away. If there is potential I don't want to be the one responsible for not taking action, I would love to have the knowledge to support her and then don't want to look silly or make a fuss over nothing Thanks 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
