Im a 13 y/o boy, I want to do dance REALLY bad, but my mom wont let me!
I'm 13 and I REALLY want to do dance (Jazz, ballet, tap, etc.). My sisters were dancers and I can tell that dance is in our blood. I previously asked my mom to let me join a dance team, but she wouldn't let me because "it would be too girly and people would call me gay." After seeing a trailer for Newsies, I became very inspired to do dance. One day, I would love to be on Broadway, since one of my passions is also acting. My mother says that I should do guy sports like swimming and track/cross country, even though Im terrible at sports in general. I do like doing those sports, its just that I dont love, to do those sports. How can I convince my mom to let me do what I love the most? How can I make her let me live with no regrets?

Prove it to her! Keep doing what you love and you'll see, she will learn to accept you and your passion! It takes a lot of persistence.
