Hi, I'm new and am looking for thoughts/insight on something that is bothering me...but maybe shouldn't be, not sure. I have been dancing for just over a year, private lessons with the same instructor. We have an amazing rapport. Recently he advised he wants me to dance with another instructor 50% of the time (I go 90 min...so would be 45/45). Even told me who. He says it will make me a better dancer, but I can't help shake the feeling that he's "dumping" me. It also bothers me that the decision was made for me...that it is happening, the instructor and frequency. I am so upset that I don't even want to go to my next lesson which will now be split (old/new instructors) So my questions: 1) Is it normal to have lessons with other instructors? Is it really for growth? 2) Should it upset me as much as it has? I'm paying a lot of money...should the decision not be mine? 3) How should I address this with my instructor (current one)?
