Re: Need help convincing nephew's parents to let h Posted by Juice23 10/14/2006 6:19:00 AM
So they would rather him get sweaty with other boys than dance with girls...right- I hate it when parents are like that. If you're looking to put him in ballet- have they ever seen Baryshnikov dance? I don't know what's feminine about that. For jazz or modern- have they seen the Alvin Ailey company?? If you want to put him into ballroom- now there's a whole other set of arguements against them there. You just have to find the right route. He does have time, he's young, but just continue to talk to them about it and try to show them some real dancers. Is it possible you could start a ballet class for boys? Just keep exposing him to dance- its the best thing you can do.
