We are the midst of a very busy Recreational Division Registration and we were reminded to slow down and appreciate the little things. We received a very lovely letter from one of the RD Student's parent and thought it appropriate to share with everyone.
The “Boys Program” at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet is very special. It allows boys to develop a desire for dance in an environment that is not stereotypically “girly”. It teaches the boys that dancing is not necessarily feminine, that expression through movement is wonderful and masculine. It teaches the boys to develop strength and carry and conduct themselves as young “gentlemen”. In short it is exactly how I want to raise my son.
Ten years ago if someone had asked me if my son would love dance and I would be spending as much time at the RWB that I am I would have laughed. I can say I was wrong and could not more proud that my son is proud to be different.
Thank you for providing a wonderful environment for my children and specifically my son to grow in.
Thank you so much for sharing your feedback! We love hearing from parents, patrons, and fans! Please reach out to us anytime.
