longcommute Posted June 28, 2008 Report Share Posted June 28, 2008 (edited) Most of the girls in my DD's school with noticeable flexibility have done gymnastics before they have started ballet. My daughter is 10 now, has been dancing since she was 4. She has never been a flexible or athletic child. Now that she is getting more serious in ballet, lack of flexibility and strength has been limiting her progress. Would gymnastics ( only once a week classes) help her gain flexibility and strength? I know that gymnastics promotes arched back, but since she has a ballet foundation can she overcome that? I also thought about Pilates but she is to young to attend group classes, and privates are extremely pricey. Former gymnastics parents, please share your experiences.
