The dreams of a child should be honored. No matter how much we teach technique, demand excellence and require dedication.... the dreams should be respected. Screaming, labeling, insulting comments will destroy the love for the art. The love for the art of ballet is a huge part of what we are teaching. Strive to teach technique in a way that allows each dancer to form a life-long love for the art.... whether they dance in 10 years or not!!!!
