Guest beckster Posted May 6, 2004 Report Share Posted May 6, 2004 I've been doing ballet consistently for about 3.5 years now, and I am feeling a bit discouraged. At the moment I do three classes a week. One is non-syllabus, one is a very technical syllabus class, and one is a dancey syllabus class. It's a nice mix, but I don't feel like I'm improving. In fact some things, like pirouettes and pose turns, are getting worse. My flexibility is worse too. I don't even seem to be able to use my turnout or my feet the way I used to. Now I know that some other things have improved, like my strength and my brain (I can reverse combinations and steps a lot more easily), but when I look in the mirror it is very disappointing! I know that people hit plateaus in ballet - but surely getting worse can't be good. Please tell me I'm normal and that it will pass! Quote Link to comment
