Spring is here, and what does that mean? SPRING BREAK!!!! For young dancers this often means time
off from classes, as well as time off of school. Time to rest and recover is not a bad thing, sometimes a
necessary thing and not something that should be feared. To highlight my point, I'd like to share an article from Pointe Magazine discussed the importance in rest for a very common injury, shin splints. http://pointemagazine.com/issues/junejuly-2009/scoop-shin-splints
Dancers often feel that any time off means that they aren't working hard enough and are going to get "out
of shape" but just because you're not in class, doesn't mean you stop working.
