Guest Shdwdrgn Posted January 2, 2006 Report Share Posted January 2, 2006 When I started getting a nervous twitch in my leg, I took up doing leg stretches before bed each night. It's done wonders for my flexibility, and I no longer have problems with my leg. I would like to continue stretching, but think I may be twisting my back with the way I do it. To add to this, I've always felt real stiff when it comes to dancing, but my wife loves to dance with me. I just feel like a klutz, and am not very sure of my step. I'm 37 years old, and it seems like I should be able to do better than this by now. I have a very natural tendancy to stand on my toes (demi-point?), and can walk around for quite some time like this. Because of everything combined, I have recently been thinking that maybe an adult ballet class might be useful to me. Learn some good stretching techniques, learn how to smooth out my motions and (possibly?) learn some grace in movement, and potentially even become less self-concious about dancing in general. So, based on all of this, does anyone think ballet sounds right for me? Will it help me learn any of the above, or am I already a hopeless case? And if I do take a class, is there anything else I can hope to learn from it? Quote Link to comment
