    Default Is 2 classes a week to much?

    Dd1 who is 5 started dance class a couple of weeks ago after switching from tumbling which she had been doing since 3 to catch up a gross motor delay. Anyway this week the teacher has asked if we could bring her to a 2nd class per week as she is showing promise ( a big surprise to me!). I'm just not sure if it's to much she is only 5 and at preschool full-time. Is it normal for dance to have more then 1 class per week? Apparently this 2nd class is an exam ballet class where in her current class she does a bit of everything.

    If she wants to do it, and has no other after school activities, I say let her do it.

    Seems pretty normal to me. We always said 2 after school activities for our DD was enough until she is round 7-8, then we will add a couple more possibly.

    As long as it's not 2 days in a row I would say it shouldn't be a problem. But remember when she starts school she may find it a bit much at first especially if they are both week days.

    No different to when my twins were little and they did a swimming lesson plus a gymnastics class.

    I think it's fine as long as your daughter wants to do it and it doesn't tire her out too much. the girls I'm going over to nanny do lots of activities but the girls love that so if there happy why not

    My DD does one dance lesson (she is 5), but I would happily send her to two if she wanted to!

    Thanks for that. She really seems to be enjoying dance so she has been going to both classes. Luckily 1 on sat.

    If your daughter is fine with it I don't see a problem. My DD is 5 and does 2 Classes on a Saturday morning. She does 1 hour of jazz/tap and 45 mins of ballet and she is fine with that!

    My DD is 9 now and does 3 dance classes a week, one jazz, one hip hop and one contemporary PLUS a swimming lesson each week.

    She's been dancing for 5 year now and started doing 2 classes a week at around 5, if she's happy too then why not at least see how she goes? My DD loves her dancing even though it now imposing on her weekends.
