Dancing and Running
Hi I was wondering if you could answer a question about a topic on your web site. A woman was asking about if dancers should run. I am a high school student and my dance teacher says that it is bad for you to run and take ballet at the same time. My school district won’t let me take off-campus P.E. unless it is an olympic sport and they consider dance a fine art. What I need to know is if you can tell that it is bad so I don’t have to take P.E. Should you dance and run or is it just a myth? Please help me! Last year they made me take P.E. and I got real bad shin splits. Thank you.
