Hi everyone. 

I think like most people who found themselves on this website, I'm trying to wrap my head around dance: comp vs prepro ballet vs recreational, good vs bad technique, job prospects, injury, age appropriateness of routines, everything, when to stay at a studio and when to walk away. It's a little overwhelming.

My daughter is almost 11, going to a good comp studio but not part of the comp team and is just happy to dance as often as possible. She wants to audition for a team but I'm not ready for that commitment so I guess I'm just a potential dance mom. [smile]

Welcome from another NJ dance mom!

Your dd dances. That makes you a dance mom by definition. You don't have to compete to be a dancer.  [biggrin]

My dd left competition for a pre-pro ballet school by the time she was your dd's age. She only did group dances, never solos when she did compete. We were fortunate to fall into a pretty good comp school that did not emphasize large numbers of dances for each student. (Fortunate financially that is!).

Welcome from an Ohio dance mom! My DD is 14 and dances competitively while also taking classes at a ballet school. She's hoping to pursue musical theater one day!

eta: Agree, I definitely consider you a dance mom!
