Balletlove Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 For those of you that are in the northern hemisphere I hope that you are enjoying the lovely hot weather while those of us in the southern hemisphere are frreeeeezzzing. I love going to class and it really doesnt require any motivation to get me there at all, however I find that I am really battling to be warm enough and to manage to move and was wondering if anyone has made any great discoveries which work in keeping you warm. Our studios do NOT have any heating and from an insulation point of view most buildings in this country fall very sadly short... no double glazing on the windows etc etc. Most of us have resorted to dancing with tracksuits over our dance clothes, because it really is too cold to take them off when you start class but although this does help to keep the body warmer it seriously makes moving a challenge and does nothing to help the feet which really dont warm up at all and I have pointe work tonight which is going to be really sore on cold feet not to mention the toenail that is about to come off I went to class last night wearing a body stocking, a leo, a second pair of tights, leg warmers, tracksuit pants, a ballet jersey a sleeveless polar top and a sleeved polar top... yes, I was warm (other than my feet) and I can start shedding clothes after a couple of barre exercises, but when class started I felt like I could barely move. What works for you to ensure that you are warm but not over dressed? Quote Link to comment
