tripnfelt Posted September 16, 2011 Report Share Posted September 16, 2011 Hello all, I am a 26yo guy who will be taking his first beginner adult ballet class on Monday. I signed up to the forum some time ago as I planned to start with my sister in January earlier in the year but we flaked. I am slightly apprehensive as I have not a clue what the age, dress-code, gender-demographic will be and will be going alone as my sister is moving overseas soon. I plan to take both workout and traditional ballet wear and see how others dress. A couple of years ago I was run training and ran a couple of marathons (for some masochistic reason), I cut my toe nails away to stop the constant ingrowing running causes, they have grown back now (mostly). Will ballet also wreck them like in movies or is that only girls on pointe? should I just annihilate them again? Do beginner ballet classes require consulting with podiatrist/physiotherapist about this and other risks of foot/leg injury? I will be taking only a 80min class once each week. Cheers ~Dan Quote Link to comment
