If youur daughter was really into dancing and got asked to become a profressional dancer, would you let her? If so, what would be your requirements?
I’m a dancer and if I had a daughter (I’m only 16) I’m not sure if I would. Mainly because I would want my daughter to go to college and explore the world before she set her mind on something. Not that there is anything wrong with being a professional dancer, because if I could I would love to do that, but she needs to make sure she really wants to do this.
You really need to stop and ask yourself, do you truly think she can do this? I know it might be mean to think that your child can or cannot do something, but it’s even worse to put them in the position where they are going to get hurt.
My requirements? Depending on the age it would be that my daughter had some other education as well (meaning college) because the truth is it takes one fall for a person to be done with dancing. If that happens you need to ask yourself, will she have something to fall back on? Also, is this something she REALLY truly wants to do. There is a huge dedication factor for both your daughter as well as you. You need to really be sure your both ready for this.
