Subject: I disagree to a point, yes in some cases, but for us it was because when we started Irish dance we had no idea about anything. The school we joined is a good school, but the teacher was disorganised. TC was lovely, but constantly late for class and I can't tell you how many time we showed up for class to find the carpark dark and empty because she forgot to let us know the class was cancelled. In the end we...
In reply to: .. 's message, "Just read this post and couldn't believe what I was reading. 99% of childen transfer because their parents aren't satisfied. Ask the dancer. It's not teachers but parents whose behavious is inappropriate. No I'm not a teacher but have seen some dispicable behaviour by parents just because their over indulged child will never be a dancer. Most times it's not the teacher, it's the parent. Helicopter parenting is rife in Irish dancing." on Sun, Oct 20 2019, 18:00:55"

found a new school and enrolled there, even then I still didn't even know transferring was a "problem"! I just thought, here's another school that has class times that suit us better, we will just go there. DD was young and only new to competing, so it wasn't a problem to do a ban.

Fast forward several years and we could have transferred again. DD was being continually bullied by another dancer and decided that instead of the horror of transferring, she would quit dancing all together.

If transferring wasn't such a big deal, maybe she would have kept dancing, which she loved and was very good at, but her shy personality stopped her because of the fuss it would have made.
