Through scheduled panel discussions and group talks, the adults get to connect, learn, and share with other parents and supporters of male dancers. Last year we realized that 3 meeting times is not enough. We will be adding some more time for you all to formally connect and share. Because the MDC is for the whole family:)
"I felt incredibly fortunate to sit together with other parents in community to support people going through challenging times and situations. It was helpful to me to get a window into other people's experience."
"The parents mixer was a great idea. It was wonderful to talk to other parents of boys who love to dance and see their perspectives on how difficult it is when sometimes they are the only boy or one of few in their hometown ballet classes or companies. Very inspiring. And thanks to Mark for the bottle of wine :)"
"I feel the parent discussion gave the opportunity for us to help others and remind ourselves that we must advocate for our sons so they know how to advocate for themselves."
