My Son Went to a Dance Intensive and All He Got Was This Lousy Ego.

Dance intensives: Do they give your male dancer big skills or big heads?


When I was a competitive gymnast, I used to go to gymnastics camps.  Think ballet intensives but upside down and with more broken bones.  They were the most fun for the natural talents with no fear but nerve racking for the gymnasts that had their neurons interacting correctly at age 13 (hand raised).  Wait a minute.  You want me to swing around this barlet go of the barflip and then catch the bar again?  I asked as the Russian instructor who, in a strong accent, told me to do a release move called a Jaeger. I thought he was out of his mind.
