DD is still very little (2 and a bit), but keeps saying that she wants to do dancing. She does gymnastics, and absolutely loves it, and they do dancing components to that - which she really enjoys.
I'm happy to let her do it, buuuut am wary about dance schools for 2 reasons:
1) Body issues. Sure, she's only little, but I know that there can be a focus on body/ weight at schools - especially if they keep going with it.
2) Make-up / adult type songs and dance moves. I really don't like seeing little girls with lots of make-up on or doing adult type dance moves. No judging for parents whose kids do that, but it's not my thing. Most of the websites I'm finding (even Kinder Ballet) seem to show kids with lots of makeup on.
Any suggestions...?? I know my criteria make it tough.
I'm after a ballet or classical type dance school that doesn't involve truck loads of make-up, and won't turn DD into a little girl who worries about her weight...
