Does ballet ruin your feet, muscles, and knees? Please answer!
Patient : Does ballet ruin your feet, muscles, and knees?
My mother has spoken with a physical therapist a long time ago, and he said all ballet dancers have problems with their feet, muscles, and knees. However, I have spoken with experienced ballerinas, and they have told that as long as you have proper training, instruction, and proper footwear, the chances are low.
