Do you think there is a problem with improper dance training at some (recreational or professional) dance studios and dance schools or not?

By "professional dance teacher training" I was referring to teacher training at professional ballet and dance academies.
Update 3: I think it is extremely sad that some children (not just for dance specifically but in other areas too) are subjected to poor training that may lead to long-term effects and injury.
