My daughter has been accepted onto the summer intensive programme at the American Ballet Theatre?

But should I let her go? I have my reservations since I know it will affect our whole family including the possibility of us all having to more states if she gets onto a full time programme, leaving our the jobs and the kids schools, not to mention the cost. I'm also worried about how the intensity of the course will affect her seeing as she's only 11 and too naive to even consider how busy she'll be and how little free time she'll have. I also know this is a once in a life time opportunity and she'll be devastated if I don't let her go. I'm in two minds about it and losing sleep! Any one got any thoughts?

If she got into Alabama, Texas, California or Detroit location, they wont ask her to the JKO school. So don't worry. Not sure about NC because this is the first year. You should let her go. They will even have other activities for them to do like trips etc. It is more like a camp that is based around ballet and at 11... More
