From the Author

Why a dance mom advice book? Why us?
Jill and I decided to write an advice book because we were constantly asking each other - and dance moms who are way more experienced than us - these issues posed in the book. Our first years with company dance daughters were a bit overwhelming. Imagine two dance moms fish-flopping our way through competition season (okay, not that fish-flop that our dancers can do! The kind where we're out of our element.) We don't think you have to be a fish out of water so we're passing along the advice we've gathered from experts in the field including dance instructors, a dance professor, a psychologist, other dance moms and even dancers themselves. 
We've gathered research on dance and also have included some fun lists we think you can relate to, or will relate to someday. The sub-title of the book says it all: growing a great dancer without losing your mind. Kids do that to us already. Let's keep what we have left.
We welcome you to the sisterhood of dance moms. We're sitting on our hineys right along with you, and proudly chauffeuring and cheering our dancers on. We swear it's not as dramatic as the reality TV shows, but the emotions are real and the time is intensive. The book is meant to be both humorous and helpful. We hope you'll agree. Bling. It. On.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Loved this book! My daughter is 9 and we have been considering whether to transition to competition dance. This book was full of relevant information and covered lots of points I had never even thought of, having never been in dance myself. The checklists and budgeting worksheet were useful. I also appreciated the perspectives from different moms, educators and medical professionals. This is a great book for parents who need to know what they're getting themselves into when their daughter says she wants to be a dancer.

Malena and Jill have put together a light, fun and easy to read guide to being a Dance Mom, that is extremely accurate, helpful and full of great information. Whether your daughter is a studio dancer or dances on a school team, the role of a Dance Mom can be difficult to navigate at times (Though not quite the nightmare portrayed on TV!). This guide addresses many concerns a mom might have about things from time commitment and financial requirements, to costumes, competition, manners, and attitudes. A great resource for anyone who has a daughter that loves to dance!
