This ballet season has been HORRIBLE. I've had many health issues with my tendons, calves, bunions, and kidneys. I've got another kidney infection right now as I type.


I just started going back to ballet after recovering from tendon issues and a bad kidney infection. I had been out for 2 months and I'm doing great right now! But I'll have to leave ballet for another week or two because of this kidney infection I have now. Things just keep popping up, and I am falling way behind.


I know I can't controll all this and it's just something that I've dealt with for my whole life. I'm not even sure if ballet is possible this year o_o I can barely take 1 30 minute class. I've been real worried about my career with dancing.


So I guess my question is...

A) Should I leave ballet until all problems are resolved and I can go a month without something popping up?

B) Should I take lower level calsses and request to be held back next year and catch up?

Ask your primary care physician what you should do. A 30-minute class isn't going to do you a bit of good. You need sustained good health in order to be able to improve, or even maintain, technique. I'd opt for cure before returning to ballet.
