    I just started taking ballet class every monday night at my local dance studio. I have never danced before in my life, but I have always loved ballet and wanted to make dancing my new hobby for the fun of it and fitness. The class is a beginner ballet class. But all the other girls seem to be way better than me. I feel like the teacher goes so fast and when I ask her to repeat it, I still feel lost.

    Also, I am SUPER SORE. My legs are KILLING me. And i am never this sore after a work out. Is that normal or is she pushing me too hard? I feel like this is a more advanced class instead of a class for someone without any knowledge of dance. Okay, thank you for your time!

    Meg9 if you are doing ballet for the first time then its normal that you will feel behind. And even if it’s a beginner class there will be some girls/boys who you think will be doing better than you but you might be doing better than you think, lots of dancers ( me included) think that they are doing badly but they are doing better than they think. If you are aged from 7 up then the ballet class naturally gets harder but if you work really hard and believe in yourself you can do it!

    If you wanna support your dance with stretching or strengthening exercises I highly recommend to also do some yoga! It helps a lot for the sore and to keep the mind focused!
