My 8 year old dd has been dancing for 2 years. Never really liked dance, except acro- which she excelled at. After years of begging we took the plunge, against her Drs advice and signed her up for gymnastics. She is just so passionate about it. Every video, everywhere we go, it's all she does. She has a beam and is self taught. Can do front and back walkovers and one hand cartwheels on it very well. Been at the gym 2 months, although we do go 2 or 3 times a week. They are pretty impressed with her, but she has no experience on bars. They have evaluated her and would like her to tryout for excel this Sat. Is this too much too fast? It's quite a time commitment. She is super focused and very determined, They re not worried about her attitude. I'm worried it's physically too much without a buildup to training slowly. Jumping in the deep end. What does everyone think? I know nothing about gymnastics. She does work out a lot and is very physically fit.
