Subject: Haha, I've been a stranger to the boards for a while and for a sec I thought I wrote this! Same here. After dancing for the same school for 14 years (including podium placements at O and NANs and a Worlds medal), my HS senior daughter opted out, mostly due to her teacher (more)
In reply to: old mom 's message, "Wow this hit home. My DD is long retired but her former dance teacher treated her like crap (more inside)" on 17:08:52 02/08/18 Thu

and the realization of what goes on behind the scenes (which, trust me, only gets worse the higher you go!) It was so much easier when she was little and didn't catch on to the games the adults play--her own teacher included. While she misses the travel and her age group friends from other schools near and far, she does not miss being a pawn in a game that was sometimes played against her. I guess what I'm trying to say is, good luck--this is nothing new.

  • DD transferred 1st yr college because she didn't want to end dance on a sour note with immature TC. New school-great-no drama. DD had a few wonderful O's experiences with new school and ended competitive dance smiling instead of with bad memories of a TC with the maturity of a spoiled child. (NT) -- DD dances for fun now and is happy she transferred, 17:52:10 02/12/18 Mon
