Guest erindezeeuw Posted January 28, 2005 Report Share Posted January 28, 2005 Hi! I've just taken my first week of adult beginning ballet classes! I'm having a great time, and am pleased with myself so far for just being able to follow along and do my best. My teacher says I have perfect turnout, which makes me very happy . . . but she also says that I have a swayback and we will have to work on it. Is this a posture thing or just the way my body is built? And is there a way to fix it? My grandmother and cousin have scoleosis, so I hope it's not just built into me. The only thing the school nurse ever noticed in those horrible scoleosis checks was that one of my shoulders is slightly higher than the other, nothing in my back. I've been trying to concentrate on standing up as straight as I can. I keep remembering the device that the man wore in Shall We Dance and hoping I won't need to find one! Any tips?
