Guest tokyorose Posted September 6, 2008 Report Share Posted September 6, 2008 (edited) Hi there My daughter whom is 11 later on this year, is currently taking classes in ballet, tap and modern. This term she will be taking about 5 hours of ballet a week, as well as some classes of jazz, modern and tap. She also takes gymnastics classes 5 - 7 hours a week, about 3 hours of this is spent conditioning and stretching. Although she is only in a recreational class, she is part of the elite group who are expected to compete in the out of age national competitions so it is quite serious and they train on bars, beam, vault and floor. Although she loves her gym she is starting to take her dance far more seriously and also has a place on 2 associate programs. My question is - Should she be thinking about giving up the gym now? And how detrimental will it be to her dance or more specifically ballet? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Edited September 6, 2008 by tokyorose Quote Link to comment
