Listen To Your Body


One thing that is very important to remember in the dance world is, you have to listen to your body. If your body is telling you to stop or not to do something, don’t do it! If you ever injure yourself, don’t go and do a big jump or push it too far in a ballet class two or three days later because you ‘feel a little better.’ You are putting yourself in danger of reinjuring yourself. I know that sitting out in a dance lesson may not be fun or enjoyable, but if you push it too far, you have to sit out twice as long because you injured yourself all over again. Remember, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY… it might not always be what you want, but you are protecting yourself from further injury. All in all, you will be back to dancing a lot sooner if you do. 😉
