Discover the Secrets to Conquering Some of The Most Common Pitfalls You Face When Learning Ballet
I recently had a severe back spasm and have had to take four days off of dance. I may have to take more days off, but in the meantime, do you have any advice on how to stay in shape while having a back injury?
I was confused by what you meant about 180 degrees turnouts. On many tutorial videos there are young girls doing perfect turnouts but there is nothing to suggest they have done it wrong and their teachers say they are doing it right? Should they be able to do it naturally or do you think they are forcing their knees? Also, in one video it said third position was unnecessary. is this true or was the demonstrator incorrect?

I looked at all the ballet dancers dancing professionally and noticed that all of them went to the Royal Ballet School in London. Could I ever make it without going there?

Do you have any tips on doing a triple en dehour pirrouette?
Hello. I can’t seem to get my double. I’ll be able to do one perfectly in class but the next class I will only be able to do singles. I don’t twist my body and I spot really well but I just can’t seem to balance. My teacher expects us all to be able to do doubles no problem, because a clean single is harder than a double, she says. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t always do a double. I used to have a perfect double over the summer on my left and I could do one every time I tried, but now I can only do a single and I don’t know why. How can I get a good double on both sides?
