backtothebarre Posted July 9, 2011 Report Share Posted July 9, 2011 (edited) Hello all! I am 21 years old and am a former dancer with a preprofessional company. I am now in college and have not been dancing for the past 3 years (I stopped when I came to college). I've always had a weight problem, so much that even when I was in high school I wasn't allowed to perform because of my weight. Although I was told I was a wonderful dancer, blah blah, I just couldn't shake the weight thing. I'm now on weight watchers and I'm trying my best to lose the weight . That being said, once I start to lose weight, I would really like to start taking classes again. EASY SIMPLE classes. Has anyone had experience with transitioning back to taking ballet classes after losing a significant amount of weight and 3 years off? How long will it take me to get back into the swing of things? [My flexibility is awful now...well, not for the "average" person"] I'm looking forward to hearing from y'all! Thanks!
