Thought I broke my foot, but I didn’t.
I was coming out of a fouette turn, and heard something pop in the center of my foot. I didn’t think much of it, because it didn’t hurt, but the next day I noticed it was swollen. I took a picture of it to show to my dance friend and saw it was bruised.
Went and got x rays, and turns out it’s not broken.
so, what do I do?
I can’t afford to skip another dance class. If I want to improve, I have to dedicate as much time as I can to this.
What did I do?
I was stubborn and went to dance class.
And wouldn’t you know it, the arch on that foot is so beautiful now!!
I wish I could do the same thing to my other foot so they match.
I’m guessing whatever that pop sound was helped my arch in some way.
Go figure.

Last week was a rough week in class, but Monday’s class went wonderfully. I’m feeling really good about it all and was able to keep up. I’m hoping this is an oncoming trend.
