DTD is a "roller skate dancer" in school play.
She cannot roller skate
She has no roller skates that fit
I have no time to teach her to skate in hte next 3-4wks
I refuse to buy her roller skates (Santa may bring some)
We don't know anything else about the role other than the 'title'.
Should I talk to teacher and find out exactly what is involved
IF it does involve wearing a pair of skates would you/can I refuse and ask for her to have another role in play?

what my reaction?
if they are assuming she can skate they are in for a surprise and it is not fair to expect here to either learn in 3wks or to kind of waddle around trying not to fall over if there is someone else in the class who can skate.
It may be that it is 'pretend skating'...which is fine by me. I just want to make sure that they are asking the appropriate person.

One of my children did this in her Christmas production a few years ago and it was hilarious! Wonder if it's the same play...
However, the school did choose some children who could roller skate fairly well and already had their own skates. It's madness if they can't skate or don't own any!
I must admit, I was a bit surprised they did this, our head is normally so tight on health and safety (I reckon they didn't tell her!), but it was a very short piece and went without major problems, a couple of wobbles being the only problem.
