drivingmissdancer Posted August 10, 2008 Report Share Posted August 10, 2008 My 12 yo finished her intensive this summer and we have been very happy to find out that our home studio continues to provide great training. The recommendation that she received in her evaluation was to keep doing what she is doing with respect to ballet classes, but to add pilates to really work on developing her core strength. My question is - how much pilates is recommended at this age to make a difference on her strength (we plan on starting with 2 classes a week)? And will her ballet classes also continue to improve core strength as she matures? She is unbelievably flexible and struggles to keep everything "held together" -mostly in the center. I understand why pilates will help, but I am trying to figure out how much will actually make a difference at this point and if a lot of this will correct itself with time and regular daily classes. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
