Richard,

My son Jamie was an excellent dancer when he was age 7! In fact, could out
dance many old hand SCDers! He was interested and was talented however, his
younger brother Ian was not as interested...and remained so. I think alot
has to do with the leadership and interest. I have been to classes where the
kids do run around the room and cause disruption. Much of the problems in
those classes is the fact the parents don't assert their authority and the
leadership won't say anything until the class has been disrupted.
