theannieplanet asked: Hello again! I read that you guys use tennis balls to help with your arches, you roll them back and forth with your foot, right? So do you point your foot while doing this or keep them normal?
le-moncola asked: Don't you have to turn out with your inner thighs and muscles instead of using your ankle?
the-gingerdancer asked: How come you have 3-4 pair of Pointe shoes?! Surely that's more than anyone would need lol? :) x

theannieplanet asked: Hello! Your tips are so helpful! I have another question. When I do a grand jete, I have my legs in a full split, but my teacher wants me arch my back more. This is really really tough for me. Is it tough for everyone or just me? Anything I can do to make it work? Thanks :)
teenage-pirouettes asked: What kinds of streches get me more flexible??
Anonymous asked: I just readed the last ask you received and I have a comment for you. Ive just reached a good oversplit and now my way to warm up is only going into splits, other way I don't reach my muscles dont get a correct wam.
Anonymous asked: Hi, I just wondered why do my new Pointe shoes not make my feet feel as light, they feel sort of box-y and don't look flexible? Are they the wrong size? Thanks!
theannieplanet asked: Hello there! I have a problem with my pointe shoes and I was wondering if you could help. When I put my shoes on and stand on the boxes, my foot is straight up but my shank is diagonally sideways, falling to the side.

Anonymous asked: For every anon wondering if is ever too late to start ballet. In my country, the national ballet theater's first dancer started ballet at the age of 17. He has won a lot of international competitions and he's been preparing for prix de lausanne. If you are good in it, go ahead and you can achieve your dreams.
