Guest Jazzabelle Posted October 21, 2003 Report Share Posted October 21, 2003 Howdy! I'm brand new to the site and so far I'm loving it.. Anyway.. Two absolutely different questions. I've just begun ballet again after having done cheerleading for two years, gymnastics for about four, and about two and a half years of dance (ballet/tap). Since starting back, my instructor has said I've improved a ton and thinks that it's just I've gotten the hang of it all again. Right now I'm enrolled in a Pointe/Technique class that lasts an hour. I live an hour away from the studio so I am only allowed to go once a week seeing as my mom does not like to drive that far too often. The other day in class I asked my teacher how much training it usually took to get on pointe. We talked about that which led to her question of whether or not I was interested in getting on it. I said "Yes!" and I pretty much got a sense that she thought I could do it (strength and technique). She's bringing me back a pair to try on for myself and see how they feel next class (in two days). Do you think this is too soon or all right? Next. The doctor has told me that I have loose joints. They pop so often, even when I'm not doing anything like dancing, stretching, or excercising. Just out of the blue! A lot of times these pops -really- hurt and make me stop what I'm doing or cringe. I was told that strength training would help with this sort of thing but I don't have the time to do it. Do you know of anything that would help or if this is hurting my dancing in any way? Thanks!
