tatjanas Posted January 9, 2012 Report Share Posted January 9, 2012 May dd is 8 years old. She started ballet lessons a year ago and she absolutely loves it! She is going through her exams very fast as well (she is taking RAD). Now she is panicking that she is not one of those kids who can easily do the splits and that will stop her to be a professional ballerina. I am trying to come her down and say that if she will stretch regularly and safely, the flexibility will develop. But is that correct, if she is not able to do the splits now, it will be difficult to get to full time ballet school? Currently in Grade 2 there is no requirement to be flexible. When that will become essential for ballerina? Quote Link to comment
