My almost 5yr old is doing 3 pre-team class hours a week. I'm considering moving down to two hours weekly and starting her in a ballet/tap combo class once a week. My question: will the dance techniques conflict with the gymnastics technique? I feel like I've read something somewhere that affirms this - about turnout or something?
Speaking as a dance teacher here - any good dance teacher would recognise that 5-year-olds are still in a "pre-ballet" sort of stage and should be doing very little actual technique. There shouldn't be much conflict until they're about 7 or 8, in a once-a-week combo class, if the teacher knows what they're doing.
