Dance families - a perspective to honour or reject? Should we slow down to smell the roses again?

A message to families with dancers & to dancers - the all consuming ‘recreation’ ‘hobby’ ‘sport’ that takes over your lives suddenly!

No! It definitely, is not. - Dance is actually one of the most amazing activities you can put your child into when the time is right - they learn passion, discipline, team work, attention to detail, creativity, they learn to listen & take on corrections they learn that in order to improve you must work harder than you ever have before. Your child will learn that the feeling of dancing on stage is absolutely exhilarating & there is nothing else that this world could offer that is quite like it.
