Dance*is*life Posted July 12, 2016 Share Posted July 12, 2016 She is supposed to be going to summer school in New York at the weekend and has been looking forward to it ever since she was accepted - even got contact lenses in honour of it. She has improved so much and she works like mad, never missing a class. Yesterday was our senior show and during a stage lighting rehearsal she fell badly out of a grand jete and injured her foot. We iced it and gave her pain killers, but I took her out of the pointe dance of course. However, she insisted on doing all her other dances, with her foot strapped up and in great pain. Today she rested and the swelling has gone down - tomorrow she's doing an x-ray. I just so hope that it will prove to be just a sprain and not a fracture - I can't believe she could have stood on the foot with a fracture however small, but still summer school is so intensive that even a sprain could ruin it for her. Ooof - it's such bad timing and she really does not deserve this set back, poor girl. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
