mermangel Posted September 19, 2006 Report Share Posted September 19, 2006 Hello all. i just am finally taking the time to jump in with both feet and say "hi". i am a 37 year old mother of two. i returned to ballet (again) last year after taking a break to have my second child. (i had taken classes for a year after a 20+ year "hiatus" before becoming pregnant). right now i am taking only one class a week (all that time and money will allow at present), but hope to move to at least 2 pr week in the new year ('07) and hopefully progress to pointe in about a year or two. i have enjoyed perusing the board(s) and hope to be able to more actively participate in the weeks and months ahead. now, realizing we are all different in terms of bodies, strength(s) and experience, for those of you with a somewhat similar background, how long did it take to go from "advanced adult 'beginner'" to being on pointe? and is it as glorious and exhausting as it appears to those of us on the "other side" in our pink leather slippers? hope you all have a grand day. ~alice Quote Link to comment
