Anonymous said: hello quick background I'm 30 years old mother of one beautiful 6 year old daughter,,,, ever since I can remember this girl loves to dance and often I find her being the white swan. she's been dancing since she was 4yrs old she been dancing in ballet tap combo classes , recently ive removed her from that dance studio to another that allows her age group to dance only ballet. I feel like theres more I can do to help her realize her dreams any suggestions for a mom that has no exp in dance

It’s so great that you’re involved and want to learn more! Since I am not a mother and don’t have too much experience with the little ones; my best advice would be to sign up to Ballet Talk for Dancers. (http://dancers.invisionzone.com). It’s a website that covers most topics and has forums for different levels, ages, and even parents. There are tons of topics that have been covered, and you can always ask questions and get answers from people more experienced than myself. I am no way affiliated with this website, but it has helped me to learn more. My advice would be to keep encouraging her. Even if she does not pursue a career in dance, the things she learns in ballet class will help her through out her life!

I am 19 years old and an incoming transfer student at UCLA. I’m moving to the city this month to complete my bachelor’s degree in English and I’m in a bit of a bind. I didn’t qualify for the financial aid that I actually need and now my dad’s been laid off for at least 60 days…
