Guest devion101 Posted October 10, 2003 Report Share Posted October 10, 2003 Hi, I am, if I may say, a pretty good dancer on pointe. What can I say? It comes naturally. The only problem is that my right foot has a sickle. Not a really serious one, but it's by no means perfectly straight. My shoes' platform is even slanted in its wear pattern to match it... Anyway, I've tried everything to correct it! My foot naturally sickles, and it seems like it's uncorrectable. My teachers ignore it now. Denise Dabrowski was the only one that stayed on it... Is it possible to be good with a sickle? I can work just fine and balance and pirouette like no tomorrow, the sickle doesn't affect me at all! Is it absolutely necessary that it be corrected? There's no way that I would just leave it and not make any effort to correct it, I'm always thinking about it, but it's just always there to some degree. Anyway, any input about living with a sickled foot would be great! Maybe we should start a club : Sickled Foot Dancers Anonymous Cheers, Devion Quote Link to comment
