This kind of knee problem needs attention from an Orthopedic specialist, preferably one who has experience with dancers. It sounds to me like possible meniscus damage, and this will NOT get better with continued dancing. But it needs to be diagnosed by a physician, certainly not by someone who has never seen you!

Who pays for your classes? If they support you that far, surely they will support you when you are injured, especially as this type of injury is a problem which might well go beyond your dancing and affect your ability to even function normally.

 

I'm sorry, "me", but there is nothing that we can do for you if you can't do more for yourself. I find it a bit hard to believe that the kind of people who pay for your ballet classes and love and support you are oblivious to your health. If you are in serious trouble with a knee or anything else to do with your health, then it would be child abuse, IMO, to avoid taking you to the doctor. Is it possible that they do not understand how bad it is, or think you are faking or something? This just does not sound right to me at all.

my mom pays for my dance classes as well as buys all of my dance stuff but she only does this so that i have some thing to keep me busy every one else in my family my parents and sisters are all really good at sports and my mom dosen't belive that some one who leaps around on her toes in a tutu can get hurt
