Whiteduvet Posted June 18, 2018 Share Posted June 18, 2018 Hello First time posting so please be nice! DD is 8 and has flat feet. Essentially, her arches are dropped (so when she stands in first, her foot doesn't rise up after her toes and then down again to her heels if that makes sense: it's one straight line): she wears insoles in her normal shoes. This is genetic (from her Dad). She's also got his hypermobility though so is very flexible and when she points her toes it's a really beautiful shape. Is anyone able to give me any guidance on what this means for her ballet-wise? My gut is that it's going to make 'proper' ballet training impossible, and that ballet schools wouldn't even look at her, however talented she might be, but I may be wrong? She loves all dancing, but I want to be able to manage her expectations. Thanks. x Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
