SewRibbons Posted January 10, 2012 Report Share Posted January 10, 2012 I've seen discussions regarding the wearing of glasses in ballet class, but couldn't find anything with my specific question; I apologize if this is duplicative. My DD is slightly nearsighted. She started wearing glasses this year and wears them to school, to read, to watch TV. She does not dance with her glasses. She noted that she gets corrections in class on strengthening and focusing her spotting and sometimes falls out of turns. I am wondering if there is a relationship between vision and spotting. Does it matter whether the dancer actually sees what she is spotting vs just spotting that location. Does crisp vision bring crisp dancing? She hasn't felt hindered in class due to vision but I am wondering if it is impacting her even though she doesn't realize it. I am happy to look into contact lenses for her, but she is not that interested in them unless/until her dancing needs mandate it. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
