This tidbit in Pointe magazine caught my eye, so I thought I'd share:
Wish your pointe shoes were slightly less painful? Get more sleep! A recent study
found that when people stayed in bed for at least 10 hours a night, by
the fourth day they experienced a 25 percent decrease in pain
sensitivity. Researchers think this happens because we have more pain
receptors in our blood system when we're exhausted. How's that for an
excuse to sleep in? (Pointe Magazine 12/18/12)
So get your rest and save your feet.
FYI...for all of my local dancers in Pasadena and Los Angeles...the following classes are canceled for the holidays:
