I'm 19 and have been dancing for 17 years. 15 in a studio and 2 on my own now that I'm in college. Despite the fact that I've been doing ballet practically since I learned to walk I am no longer an "active" dancer. I have joint problems and can no longer keep up in a studio setting. I still like to break out the pointe shoes or ballet slippers from time to time, though. Makes me feel whole again, since when I'm not dancing it feels like a part of me is missing. I'm mostly just here to discuss because I miss dance since, as I said, I'm no longer able to dance in a studio.
Anyway, since I'm new I just thought I'd say hi. I look forward to getting to know the people here.
