dancindaughters Posted August 2, 2003 Report Share Posted August 2, 2003 In another thread, Redstorm mentioned that her daughters bunion started while she was a skater, and her podiatrist said that skating and dance were the two worst activities a girl could choose. Well, these are my 6 year olds obsesssions! I was wondering if anyone else has an opinion of the possible impact of skating on dance training. I have heard it mentioned that skating teaches a different posture and different way of balancing which often carries over into ballet class. I have also heard that skaters don't spot their turns. I know skaters often take ballet to improve their performance, but I was wondering if skating would be negative for ballet. My daughter will be dancing 2x/week and skating 3x. Quote Link to comment
