Ballet, pilates or gymnastics?


Recommended Posts

Hi I am fourteen and started two months ago ballet. I have two ballet classes each of 1h15. My question is should I during 3 months stop one of the ballet classes and change to pilates or gymnastics to improve strength and flexibility?

If I do that I would work at home one hour everyday on ballet, I will have one hour of ballet class and one of pilates or gymnastics until march and then i switch back to three hours of ballet classes a week.


Also for someone learning ballet is it better to do gymnastics or pilates?


Thank you,

Stay with ballet. If you can also do Pilates, that would be fine, but not gymnastics, and not anything in place of ballet!
