Advice From the Parent of a Dancer

We had the opportunity to talk with Bob Schwartz, father of the very talented dancer, Evan Schwartz, former dancer of A Step in Time Dance, who is now studying at Julliard. Bob gave us some great advice on what is required of the parents of dancers.

N: How long has Evan been dancing?

B: Since he was 6 years old.

N: When did you know that Evan would be interested in becoming a professional dancer?

B: Around the time he was in 6th grade. He seemed to really take an extra interest in dance.

N: What can you tell us about being the parent of a dancer and what kind of advice can you give to other parents?

B: I lead a soccer program and coach thousands of kids as well as other coaches. My other children are athletes, however, Evan is my only child who will become a professional in his field. My advice to other parents is, don’t put pressure on your kids. Pay for their classes, chauffeur them back and forth from rehearsals and sit back and support them by letting them have fun. So many stage parents put too much pressure on their children. Even when the child is extremely passionate about a particular sport or activity, if they have a parent pushing them too hard, the child will inevitably lose interest. I didn’t put that pressure on my son, I just  supported him by going to his performances and told him “have fun.”

N: Thank you Bob! We hope this information you have shared with us is a great help to other parents!
