Today I managed to do turning hops en pointe on one leg for the first time!! I have extremely flexible so it's always been very difficult for my to hop en pointe, but after practicing about 10 times I managed to get them down today!!

Good for you, that flexibility isn't all it's cracked up to be is it?

Yes, it's tough to get it when your are that flexible, but I am so glad to hear that. My ankles and feet were not as flexible, so I had it easier than my friends who were like you.

It just goes to show that you worked hard and now you reap the benefits.

Hi portdebras!
I've been doing ballet for 13 years (since I was very young), and this is my sixth year en pointe. `
