My daughter is 8 and is in her 4th year of dance; her 4th year of ballet and 1st of jazz. It's her first year at a new dance studio. Her jazz teacher is emphasizing stretching and flexibility, and I'd like to write a letter (for both teachers) explaining EDS, hypermobility, and why it might hurt my daughter more when they push her to do the splits. Does anybody have any suggestions? I don't want my daughter to be singled out, she loves the classes and hasn't started feeling adverse affects of the training. I think it would be good for her through her early years to continue dance through controlled movements if she can learn the proper range of motion with help from her teachers.
