Author: mom of OC
Subject: Thoughts from a mom whose dd took 3.5 years to start placing in prelims - and then had 8 firsts in a 6 month period: when she was continually at the bottom or missing recalls, or even close to podium, and would be frustrated, I would say the same thing.

"If you want that first place so bad, work harder for it". The reality is, making dancers move up right away doesn't help your dancer. That frustration my dd had when she couldn't beat the dancer who would be getting the firsts eventually pushed her to work hard enough to be better than she was, and eventually be the top box placer. It was our TC's decision to keep her there after she had her firsts, and it made her a stronger dancer. When she got to OC, she was confident and ready, and she knew that her job was to work hard enough to place ahead of other OC dancers - because when you get to OC, nobody moves out. Yes, prelims was hard for her those 3.5 years - but when it finally clicked, the rewards she had for her work were so sweet.

  • Our TC allows dancers to move right away. They earned it! (NT) -- happy at our school, 15:39:24 03/12/17 Sun
