I’ve been doing ballet for 6 years now (I’m about to turn 16) and all my dancing life I’ve had the same problem.
When I plie, even if it’s just a demi in first, and especially if it’s a grande in fourth, my knees hurt when I come up. This can’t be good.
I’ve tried all the obvious things: pressing into the floor, getting my knees over my toes, fixing my posture. I’d really rather not have to go to a physical therapist. Any suggestions?
