I have been on Ballet Talk for Dancers for a few months. My son, who is only nine, has been dancing for 2 years now, but really started to get serious(yes even at 8!) about ballet last year. I work away from home, so being sports focussed and not having a clue about ballet, kind of did not pay much attention. Well, with an extended break this summer, I got to realizing how much he loved it. So I went on a search to figure this all out. I found almost immediately as little as I thought I knew, which was nothing, I actually knew less. So, I have spent alot of time on the other site and learn something everyday, but going to spend time here just to figure out what else I can learn. It has been quite interesting so far!

Hello sonny72. It's wonderful that you are taking the time to find out about ballet. Being able to share in your child's interests and passions is an amazing experience. I have two children who are now in their 20's and I know I've grown a lot by learning about things that interested them.

I hope you and your son get to watch lots of ballet together over the years, whether live, DVD or youtube (which is a wonderful source).
