SilverUndone Posted January 3, 2009 Report Share Posted January 3, 2009 I searched the forums but couldn't find any information on this topic (although I just joined this board so maybe I'm searching wrong). About twelve or eleven years ago, I was in an apprentice company in my hometown (Fairbanks, Alaska). I took at least an hour and a half of classes six days a week in high school, had two years of pointe work under my belt, and began college (in 1998) as a dance major. I had to stop dancing in 1999 as a result of knee problems. The issue that I'm having now is that I really, really want to start taking lessons again. I know I shouldn't try to go back en pointe without first retraining in flat shoes, but given my ballet history, I'm wondering at what level I should start ballet again. The studio I want to attend has beginning, beginning/intermediate, intermediate, and advanced classes; I'm thinking that beginning/intermediate would be the most appropriate. (If it makes a difference, I've been doing pilates and walking for at least an hour four to five times a week for the past couple of years, so I'm not TOTALLY out of shape... ) Any input is greatly appreciated! Thank you! Quote Link to comment
