Hahaha I’ve only danced for a year and I relate to this blog. You don’t need to be a pro to relate to dance :)
Thank you! :)
Yoga has made my back much more flexible! Try doing cobra, downward dog, cat stretch, bridge, and wheel!
If you scroll down I just answered this. :) Stretch everyyyy day and hold it and breaaathe.
Make sure to use the floor as resistance when doing tendus, push down with doing releves, and pull up when going down. Use your body and the ground as resistance to strengthen yourself. Also try getting a theraband and doing resistance training with those for your feet and ankles!
And talk to your teacher, most importantly. Tell her its your goal to eventually do pointe, and ask her for what she recommends for you to reach that goal. :)
Stretch everyday, twice a day if you can, and hold stretches for at least 30 seconds! And BREATHE!
mmm just click the picture?
Nah, it’s no problem! As long as you feel the stretch and are getting more flexible then soreness doesn’t really matter. But try maybe switching up your stretches and holding them for longer!
I never said that they quit because they don’t love it at all. You completely put words in my mouth. I put my reasoning for not quitting, and it’s because I love it so much. Because of that I’m choosing to work less and take less units for fall semester. College is a ton of work so most people can’t dance and do school unless their school offers it.

The only reason I had to is because freshman aren’t allowed cars, so I had no way of getting to a studio. Next fall however, I was definitely be juggling classes, homework, my job, and ballet. I love it too much to quit. :)
