And M Girl's answer is: "This is a tough one. Your dad probably doesn't realize your passion for dance. Parents don't always understand you and might think you are wasting your time doing certain things because they can't relate. Maybe you're dad is really passionate about something. Talk to him about him. Compare the thing he really loves with how much you love dance. Maybe then he can understand where you are coming from. As long as your grades aren't suffering and you are able to keep up with your schoolwork or chores or whatever responsibilities you have, then dancing during your spare time shouldn't be an issue for anyone. The best thing you can do is sit down with your dad and talk to him about it. Good luck!"
