Guest Ballet_babe_123 Posted March 18, 2003 Report Share Posted March 18, 2003 Hi guys. I haven't been around lately because I've been down with the flu so it's so nice to be back!!! A while back I bruised my toe nail and while it hurt for a while to do pointe work I just worked through it and it stopped hurting and I didn't think anything of it. Recently the nail has started to detach and it's going to fall completely off. Now I realize that many many dancers go through this and don't even blink an eye, but this is the first time it's ever happened to me and I'm afraid I'm being rather a big baby about it . My question is, once it falls off, will I still be able to do pointe? I have a competition on the 1st of April in which I have a pointe solo so I really can't afford to miss out on any rehearsal time. I feel very naieve but I really don't know what to do. I've been stressing about this for weeks now and I feel a little better just throwing the question out there Quote Link to comment
