Hello love2dance, welcome to Ballet Talk for Dancers, and the Young Dancers' forum :rolleyes:


Being able to do splits is really not at all what ballet is about. They happen to be a stretching exercise used by ballet dancers, but they are not, in themselves, an ultimate achievement. If you want to dance, learn to dance. The stretching will be a part of it, and you may or may not achieve a full split some day, but that will depend a lot on how much flexibility you have to start with. However, doing them as an exercise for stretching, when you are well warmed up of course, can be helpful in your extensions in class.

I'm 15 and I just started too! I can do the splits now because every day we have class we do the splits stretch for at least five minutes. It works so well you should try it. Do you know what it looks like?
