I started up back on pointe again last week (I've been easing up to it so I don't irritate my foot), and did about half a class (both because of caution and comfort). I'm going to have to build up my pain tolerance again, it seems.
|My poor, neglected RPs.|
I have been up to some other shenanigans, though. One of my co-worker buddies has been taking aerial silks for several months now, and has been trying to convince me to try it out. A couple of weeks ago, I went with her to an open class and promptly discovered that while I have flexibility and leg strength, I have no arm or core strength. That's not stopping me, however, as I'm deeply intrigued by it all, so I'm doing an 8-week beginning aerial silks intensive starting next week! I am nothing if not insane (because its completely normal to not only start multiple rehearsals, but a whole other class as well). We'll see how it goes. Like I said, I have no arm strength and a sad amount of core strength, so I'm hoping to work on that (the core will definitely help with dancing, too).
