While Brittney has truly enjoyed working with her daughters in the sport she loves so much, she also admits that being their coach has presented challenges at times. “In practice, all the dancers are ‘my kids,’ and my daughters had to learn very quickly that they do not get special treatment from me. If anything, I hold them to a higher standard because they’re mine and they represent me.” She added that while she didn’t become a dance coach for the sole purpose of coaching her own children, she hopes to always be involved with their future in dance, as she has truly enjoyed sharing her love of movement with them. In talking with the parents featured, a few things stood out. Parents who coach their own children do it for the shared love of the sport, the teachable moments presented and, most of all, the opportunity to spend more quality time with their kids. Does it get any sweeter than that? feature Photo by Mar k S ta f f Photography. Ho l l and and Sut ton Car imi WE'VE BEEN CALLING MOUNT PLEASANT HOME FOR GENERATIONS
