Maybe you can help me?


Recommended Posts

Hi, My name is Julia and I'm fifteen years old. I'm new to to this website and also new to ballet! (well, to be honest I haven't even started)

I've recently moved to an apartment that is located right next to a ballet school. Every afternoon heaps of beautiful, fit dancers walk out of that place and I think "Wow, If only I could be like them..."

And why shouldn't I! So I've decided that I want to take ballet classes and I'm very excited.

The thing is, I've never done any sports and am not the most fit person (Not overweight just...not fit)


And now I have the whole summer with practically nothing to do and I think it is the perfect opportunity to get in better shape. I really don't know what to do for excersize though, or stretching...or anything, help me out? also, I have access to a gym. :D I am very very determined to do this.

Have you checked out the school about open classes? Open classes are drop ins and anyone can go. Usually they have certain levels. You should see if they have a beginner class. Don't feel discouraged about this because ballet can be for anyone. I know where I go, the teachers are always welcome to new people who haven't had training and just want some exercise!!


Good luck and welcome to the boards. :D

Welcome, Ijust and dancin, to Ballet Talk for Dancers. As this topic is not really Health and Nutrition exclusively, I'm going to move it over to Young Dancers 13-16. Some of our forums have a little etiquette attached to them, for example Health and Nutrition and Young Dancers both have a tradition that's worked well, of letting a moderator respond first before add-on information is posted by others, but the information dancin has given isn't bad at all.
