Develop your ballet dance routine with The Perfect Pointe Book. This manual is beautifully designed to develop your muscles without strain or over-work. It may not feel like that when you are an adult ballet beginner, but eventually you will learn how hard to work, how to relax and stretch in between exercises, and how to recover in between classes.
Even though this book is meant to give a student a regulated pre-pointe work up, it is finely tuned to all basic ballet technique.
If you start ballet late - The Perfect Pointe Book will speed your progress!
It can be challenging emotionally to be in a class with younger people because unless you're "born to dance" physically, you will not see as fast a progress as the younger dancers get. And you might decide you're better off in a "ballet lite" class geared toward older beginners.
