It's pretty pathetic how selfish some mothers can be. I don't know if you realize, Adela, but your daughter isn't the only student in the class. The instructor has been working in this profession for over 30 years and you're criticising how SHE runs HER class?! She spends an equal amount of time working with each student, trying to correct all their mistakes and help them understand the technique. If your daughter is slow, it truly seems like a personal problem. She didn't sign anywhere saying that she's going to babysit your daughter and hover over her, only, throughout the class until she's a perfect ballerina. I, myself, am a student at Helen's Dance Studio and I have been here since I was two years old. I am now 18 and never have I, OR MY MOTHER, complained about how she should run her class. If my mom didn't trust the long generations of ballerinas that have walked out of that studio, she wouldn't have trusted her with me. Let me mention, I have won over 10 first place awards in competitions nationwide REPRESENTING my amazing instructor and I wouldn't have gotten there if I nagged my way through. \r
I'm sorry you have a rotten personality and think you can make your way up by lying and putting others down. As an eighteen year old I can say I'm twenty times more mature than you and understand that I'm not the only person on this planet. \r
This studio isn't based on what you call ""favoritism."" It's based on what WE call ""talent.""\r
Even if your daughter wasn't the most graceful ballerina in the class, I know for a fact that the instructor that I KNOW would never turn her down. She's absolutely encouraging, kind, and respectful towards every single student. I commend her for her patience with you because if I was her, I would've just kicked you out for your negative energy. \r
Although I'm only 18 and obviously not a mother, I can still give you some good advice, Adela. Be a good role model for your daughter. The only thing you're teaching her is how to be selfish. You and I BOTH know that you're review was a waste of time. Grow up, it's about time.
