  1. Thanks so so much for the video!! My main problem is that I can't balance well enough and as a result I lean. Also I can't do spotting…Any advice please???????

  2. hi Katherine, my name is freya. I learn classical ballet, and have been most of my life. I am only eleven, but I try to wake up an hour before I have to every day and do dance stretches. I found it so inspiring to have videos from a professional, I love your channel! I was wondering if you could do a video on foot stretching, and pointe exercises, as I haven't got mine yet x thank you ❣

    PS. my teacher uses the phrase "open your front, show of your diamonds!"

  3. I have good balance. I can stay on pointe maximum 3 seconds but when I do the pirouette I only can do one because I get scared and I feel I'm going to fall over (I already did), what should I do?

  4. I try to do multiple pirouettes one after the other and I just feel really dizzy and sick to my stomach and I don't know how to spot while doing the actual turns. Any tips?
