For Me It's a Religion Posted September 22, 2010 Report Share Posted September 22, 2010 Hello fellas, I'm 24 and a newcomer to ballet - about to have my third class tomorrow and I love it!! Even with only two classes, when I'm in the middle of it I feel like I've come 'home'. I've tried yoga before and had a similar kind of experience but not nearl so profoud. Simply moving the body in certain ways makes me feel a sense of unity and wholeness that I've never felt before. I can only do one class per week at my school but need my fix on a daily basis and so have just got the New York Ballet Workout book which is really helpful and quite satisfyingly gruelling. I swim a little and feel this helps build strengthen the core but would like some advice for more advanced dancers on how to practice/train, how often I should spend etc. I'm terribly worried that I don't have good turnout due to starting late and any advice on improving that would be great. I've visited this site often before I stared class and find it wonderfully supportive and encouraging to know others out there are in a similar ship as it were. So thanks to everyone contributing to this supportive atmosphere and I hope to find some new dancer friends Over and out Quote Link to comment
