Marjolein Posted October 20, 2010 Report Share Posted October 20, 2010 Strength has always been my problem, as I'm really flexible and build up strength really slowly. But I've been away from ballet for quite a while, and I seem to have no strength left whatsoever. It feels as if I do not have the strength to execute a lot of steps, while I still know how to do them. (For example, doing développé à la seconde in the centre, I could barely lift my leg 45 degrees!) I know it will come back in time, but for the moment, I only have access to one ballet class and 2 jazz classes a week, 5 hours of dance total. Though the jazz classes are very technical and involve a lot of classical technique, and they will certainly aid in building up strength, I don't feel that will be enough. What could help me gaining strength? Quote Link to comment
