SCHOOLS COMPETE FOR CHILDREN

Talented children should consider the arts

MANY parents who complain that their children are hyperactive may not realise that this can be an expression of physical talent, the director of a Bratislava dance school said. “Such children are constantly in motion, but in a coordinated way,” said Katarína Zacharová from the Eva Jaczová Dance School. “They sense rhythm and music, and move to it.”

MANY parents who complain that their children are hyperactive may not realise that this can be an expression of physical talent, the director of a Bratislava dance school said.
“Such children are constantly in motion, but in a coordinated way,” said Katarína Zacharová from the Eva Jaczová Dance School. “They sense rhythm and music, and move to it.”

Talented children should be encouraged to pursue physical activity of all kinds, including sport, the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote. Once the child is old enough, they can apply to an artistic school, where they will gradually discover which art form is right for them, it added.
Slovakia has a developed system at elementary artistic schools for finding and supporting talented children, especially in dance, music, and the visual arts.
And even if a child doesn’t pursue the arts at a young age, hard work can revive their abilities at an older age, because a talent never goes away completely, Jaczová said.
However, children and parents should keep in mind that, like any other profession, the arts require years of hard work and pressure, which make studying them very demanding, she said.
