    Don't take no for an answer, but take it easy if your mother or father is annoyed.

Tips

  • Start practicing dance moves around the house and maybe even make little routines to show your parents. They will see how much you want to dance.
  • Remember to ask politely.
  • Never say mean things to your parents. Just ask politely and make sure you say something they will agree with.
  • If you have a friend that does dance try to get her and her mom to convince your mom.
  • Make sure you are certain you want to do dance classes before trying to convince your parents.
  • Don't whine.
  • If she says no over and over when you ask just drop it, maybe it just wasn't meant to be.
  • Sometimes it will take a while for your parents to say yes, maybe even a few years. Be prepared to wait.

Warnings

  • Make sure you look up the costs of dance classes near you.
  • Some dance classes cost quite a bit of money so make sure your parents can afford it.
  • You don't want a dance class miles and miles away.
