    For Parents Dance Moms - Slightly Off Topic

    My DD (11) made the switch back in December from gymnastics (level 8) to competitive dance. This show was very interesting to watch, but we have yet to experience this behavior in the studio. I think it was scripted to bring more attention to the show. There are definitely crazy moms in any...

    For Parents Growth Spurt Anyone???

    Luckily she is not still growing. She has stopped :) It has really only hurt her bars a little. It seems like they are not quite as easy for her as they were before?

    My daughter had a HUGE growth spurt this summer, and shot up to 4 foot almost 6 inches!!! She is 9 years old. She used to be about the middle of the group, and now she is one of the tallest!!! Is that normal for 9 year olds?

    For Parents Do you have a home gym/equipment

    I agree. I think with the increase of gym hours, the girls start to value there time outside of the gym. We really like to keep it seperate, we let her initiate any convos about gym other than our usual "how was gym tonight". Sometimes she will tell us a week later what happened :) I dont want...

    For Parents Were your kids on a REC program b4 team?

    My dd had no rec experience. She had 1 year of cheerleading experience before being placed as a level 4 on team. I can definately see the advantages of having your daugter on a rec/pre team before, but can say that in the last 2 years of gym, she has caught up with all of the other girls on her...

    Let's Talk Leotards:o)

    It really is a horrible addiction! My dd love the adidas leotards, and so far we have purchased almost every new one they have! She says they are the most comfortable, and very thin. She does not like any thick material.

    For Coaches Help for her hands!!!

    My dd is training alot of giants, clear hips etc, and her hands are on fire after she is done! She does not have a rip, but the calluses are huge, and I am afraid she will have one soon. Any tips on how to deal with calluses would be helpful too! Thanks in advance :)
