MyDancinGirl Posted November 17, 2011 Report Share Posted November 17, 2011 My almost 13 year old, 2nd year of pointe dd, will have a 2 week break from dance classes over Christmas and New Years. I am trying to find some "open" ballet classes for her to attend at other studios but am having difficulty. What are some things she can do at home to help keep her strength, stamina, flexibility and foot strength up? I don't really like her "practicing at home" because I don't want her developing bad habits and I don't know much about dance to be able to correct her. She has Therabands and could do some exercises with them, but was wondering if it is worth getting any at home videos she could do during that time. I understand a break is often needed (especially after hectic Nutcracker season) but running idle and not doing much for 2 weeks sounds not very healthy either. Any suggestions? Quote Link to comment
