I like to wrap the band around my toes, sit on the floor (back straight and tummy pulled in) and point and flex. Just something that was taught in my first ballet class ever. Heel - ball - toes. Toes - ball - heel. And repeat. It is totally simple and very effective! In addition I should probably do a set of relevés, but I don´t want to have sore calf muscles tomorrow. Come Saturday there is going to be pain anyway. Hah! I really hope my feet have not forgotten everything, and that my toes will forgive me.. But: no pain, no gain. Right?
Finis Jhung teaching pointe class (level 2). I´m thinking of buying the DVD. Though it´s no substitute for a real live ballet teacher! I would view this as theory only.. And save the putting into practice for class.
