longcommute Posted May 18, 2008 Report Share Posted May 18, 2008 Hi everybody. I wanted to introduce myself and ask a quick question. My DD will be 10 in couple months, dancing 3 days a week. She will start pointe classes next year if her teacher decides to move her up. She will attend the SI of her school for 6 weeks, 2 hours a day. I was thinking about a way to keep her fit this summer. First I considered getting a ballet instruction DVD and let her practice with that at home. Then my common sense said that would not be right, might give more harm than good, she might pick up bad habits. Now I am thinking about purchasing a pilates DVD for her to strengthen her core muscles, balance and flexibility. She will swim, get into other activites and be a child during summer but I was thinking doing pilates and her regular ballet stretches with mommy would not hurt either. Does anyone have a suggestion about a well balanced pilates dvd for ballet dancers? Thanks. Quote Link to comment
