The great majority of dancers have their first taste of dance through some kind of recreational program, many under the age of 5, perhaps in a ballet-tap-jazz combo class, or small part in a local community production…Unfortunately, many recreational studios are reluctant to encourage talented pupils to pursue their training goals at schools with more focused programs, falsely touting that they themselves can provide the necessary training.
A student may have fears, about trying a new step, about putting on pointe shoes for the first time, about getting injured, about performing for thousands of people, about introducing themselves to a director. All are legitimate causes for worry…
…sometimes life does throw a curve ball that removes the option of attending or participating in class…the reality is that daily ballet class is the foundation of all progress, and is crucial to the continued development and success of our students.
