So...this is probably not going to be a very popular opinion, but in my experience, most dance teachers are like this once you start getting into the more competitive levels (of any kind of dance).
I did dancing for years and even changed dance schools to try and get back to having fun instead of being super competitive. But they were all the same.
As long as they have dance moms egging them on, desperate for great results, dance teachers will still get away with it.
You're doing the right thing by encouraging your daughter, but I'm afraid it may fall on deaf ears if the teacher is still being a bully.
I pulled my daughter out of dancing as soon as it stopped being fun. When they're young it's cute, casual and fun and then when they get older they are expected to take it more seriously. Some kids love the challenge, some don't. My girl definitely did not like dancing as a serious activity.
I’ve always told my kids, as soon as it’s no longer fun its time to try something new. Kids should love sport, not dread it.
Try a different dance school if you live in a big enough area that has more than 1 available??
Ah yes, gymnastics squads became a bit like this. Having a break was the best thing we did for my girls, now they don't want to go back.
If he teacher treats her like that, take her out. Thats no way you talk to a 7 year old, no way. My daughter is doing dancing for years, sometimes they win sometimes they dont. No teacher in her right mind will behave like this. Save your cash or take her somewhere else where she is taught to dance and enjoy it, not bullied.
Welcome to dancin
Omg you have said how laid back you are. It’s a competitive dance school ffs!
Go to the more laid back dance schools if that’s how you treat the situation.
It’s like a company hiring people that do a half arsed job because they just want to enjoy their job.
