Denying rights is risky business
I recently received an email from a mother of a 12-year-old blind daughter; I will refer to her as Sophie. The mother proceeded to tell me Sophie had been in dance classes for many years; the now 12-year-old was taking a big step and starting pre-point class.
What does pre-point mean for you non-dancers? Point is the type of dancing you often see at the ballet where the dancer is standing on the very tip of their toes. Pre-point is the first step for a dancer before she upgrades to wearing point shoes and dances all the way on toe.
