I wouldn’t trade my years as a dance mom for anything. I relished every minute of it, the rehearsals, the performances, all of it. But I also know how financially draining it can be.
Over the years, I’ve developed several ways to support my daughter’s passion for dance and I’m going to share them in this four-part series. So, let’s get started!
