Dance has taken me International and I plead with parents to allow their children to dance.We are in the 21st century and dance is everywhere. It is also in the School curriculum at all levels,Nursery, Primary and Tertiary Institutions.
We have activities that are attached to dance in Schools, I call on Parents to support their children to dance.My father did not agree with me when I started but,now we are very good friends when he saw that,dance has taken me to the international stage and I do my responsibilities in the family. I am a Graduate of LASU, Kaffy graduated from Ife and many more prominent Dancers abound . As far as your children are not doing it in a negative way,let us as parents encourage them.
