Sanna Koulu Posted May 13, 2003 Report Share Posted May 13, 2003 Hello I was browsing the men's and teens' forums and found a number of threads on telling people you do ballet and on the trade-offs of focusing on ballet. Of course, it's probably harder for men in our culture, and pre-pros with such an intense commitment to dancing - but are there adult ballet students who have trouble telling people you dance seriously? (I started ballet last year (at the advanced age of 25 and I've gotten looks from both non-dancing friends and my folk dance buddies. For some reason, even though I was used to dance rather a lot in several dance forms, it was the addition of ballet that bemused people.. Now that I'm recovering from tendinitis, it's sometimes hard to get anyone to understand that one can feel almost crippled with the 5-6 hours of dancing per week that the doctor allowed. Duh.) Cheers, - Sanna Quote Link to comment
