It's going soooooo good compared to before. Now granted, DD is ALWAYS going to need some propping up. Here's a conversation from last night: (each Irish studio has their own version of each dance so she didn't just move in here knowing the dances)
"How was dance"
"OK"
"How are you doing catching on to the new dances?"
"It's so hard I don't think I can do it"
"So you aren't catching on to them at all?"
"No it's so hard"
"So what is the teacher saying?"
"Oh he complimented me on learning my hornpipe faster than someone that has been going there for 2 years"
"So you aren't getting the dances though, but he said that to you?"
"Oh ya, I guess that was good"

D'OH

The biggest thing from the ole teacher was that she couldn't get the timing, that has not been mentioned ONCE from the new teacher, whether he is just letting her learn the dances and then we will hear or if it's really NOT AN ISSUE, I am not sure yet. But she is pumped. He also complimented her again tonight on learning the new steps.

I wonder if she is so used to getting criticism that it is hard to accept the compliments?

oh that's a good point Annie, and I don't know how much the new teacher knows about the old teacher, but there's always rumor floating around the dance community. The only thing I told them was that the teaching style for us wasn't working.

Positive encouragement and praise go so much further than criticism. Hope those compliments continue to come and the negatives are few!
