    Default Ballet = Does Anybody Dance? =)

    Well as the title states, does any of you love ladies dance?
    or used to dance?

    A lil of my history;
    I used to dance Ballet (as well as jazz and tap) Ballet was definitely my passion, and that passion is still deep down within me.
    i was 16 when i gave it up. Reason being, my mother passed away and i wasn't able to go back. (due to grief.)
    I didn't go back, i do regret it, and i now (almost ten years later) have three beautiful children and a loving fiance who also dances. (hip hop) for the last year he has been encouraging me to start up again, and i really want to! its been laying dormit for some time...
    I did a lil research tonight and have "jogged my memory" and am quite excited!!!

    Getting to the point: (sorry about my ramble) is there anyone out there with similar interests?
    I would love to chat/hear your stories!
    Thanks

    I too was passionate about Ballet and gave up at 16. I then took it back up at 22 for a few years. Tips: it is hard, your body seems to remember the movement but your muscles do pay for it!! Start in a beginners for a few months to get back in form. Don't attempt pointe for awhile, your legs need a great deal of strength before you can dive back into this.
    Good luck! I wish I could still dance, but after knee dislocations and a major knee surgery ballet is out for me. Enjoy, the joy never fades.

    I've been dancing since I was 6. I'm nearly 35! I would suggest lots of stretching to ease your muscles into it. Otherwise, go for it!! Dancing is something that never leaves you. Yep it will hurt at the start but it will be so worth it
