Starting ballet again after 4 years off

This post send by QiaoLin Tan

I’ve been doing ballet since 3+, up till like, 8. I’ve been doing Chinese dance since 7 until now (12), even though no ballet, so how long would it take to get back into shape?

    If you’re already dancing then you won’t really need to get into shape. You probably already know the very basic technique. Do you want become a professional? For the first few weeks it would help if you practiced everyday on your own. YouTube is a great place for finding videos to help you. Look up Ally Olsen, she’s really good. Also, Ballet Guru 1 is a really amazing teacher. He has a course you can buy. There is also the ballet bible. I you are taking more than I class a week and don’t know where you fit, take a class in 2 different levels. This means you’re moving ahead, while still learning the earlier stuff. I hope this helps

    You probably are already in shape, just work on basic flexibility (splits and back work) and get your feet stronger if you don’t already have pointe shoes.
