Pyscho Dance Mom Kick Off

Posted by jennytpartridge on April 24, 2007

Being a dance teacher, you get to see a lot of crazy stuff. I know, I know, you wouldn’t think that teaching dance to kids would be all that dangerous, but I promise you, it is. Really. And no, not from pulled muscles because I’m out of shape.

I dance a LOT!

The hardest part about teaching dance is the parents. I’m sure any coach or teacher of any sport will tell you this. And boy could I tell YOU some stories.

Like the time the two moms got into a fight at a dance competition and the POLICE had to be called. Crazy.

Apparently, the two girls were competing against each other, and both thought THEIR daughter was the better dancer. Problem is, that’s kinda up to the judges to decide, and only one girl wins. LOOOOONG before the judicial verdict was passed, the two moms were pulling hair and slapping and screaming.

It happens in ALL competitive sports, of course, so COME ON. Tell me your stories. What’s the most obnoxious, craziest, out-of-control sport parent you’ve ever witnessed?

Winner will received a free signed copy of TUTU DEADLY! (I know, you’re so thrilled…..)

Dance on!

April 20-29 National Dance Week

Posted by jennytpartridge on April 10, 2007

Yep, you read it right. National Dance Week. I am ALL over that. Encouraging people to support the arts, and dance, and DANCE TEACHERS…. Hint hint….

Seriously, though, go to the National Dance Week Web site and join their cyber kick line. For a small donation, you can be entered to win a prize, and have your dancer’s name featured on their site. AND… you can be part of a nationwide cyber kick line. I’m not sure how that’s gonna work, quite frankly. Computers befuzzle me. Are all these people going to meet and hold hands, like that old Coca Cola commercial? I don’t know.

Maybe you can figure out.

Still, National Dance Week is tres cool.

Dance on!
