My seven year old son decided that he wants to take ballet this year. He is proud and excited and his dad and I think it is great! I am posting to see if any of you have sons who have done this and how you have supported them. He knows that he will be the only boy in his class but he has a male teacher so he doesn't mind. He has always loved dancing and music and loved watching the men in the Nutcracker last Christmas. He also loves soccer and swimming and baseball - he just loves being active. As far as I am concerned he can do this as long as he likes - one session may be enough for him or he may want to study it for many years. Already he is getting a little more fuss made over him than I am comfortable with. All of the teachers at the ballet school wanted to meet him and make a fuss over him. The store that sells dancing clothes had to specially order his uniform. I just don't want him to feel pressured or scared off dancing because it isn't "typical" for a boy of his age to want to do ballet.
