    LOL! In advertant waxing as well? Yeah, the tape can be a a pain…pre-wrap is a good option AND it comes in spectacular colors so you can color-coordinate with your outfit as well as roll a length to make one of those nonskid headbands to keep the small frizzes off your face :)

    Wishing you fast healing vibes…I’m off to the physiotherapist instead of pointe class today so I feel your pain :(

    • Ha! Yeah, surprise extra smootness and hurtiness!
      And guess what? Went to wrap the ol’ cankle this morning, started unrolling the tape, and bam, what looked like half a roll turned out to be four stupid inches. Sheesh.

    hi ,

    in november last year i have completely teared my ligament. and i got a plaster cast for four weeks
    i had just 4 lessons pointeclass. so i really know the aaargch- not-know- i – want- to dance- on pointe-feeling
    the fysio said i could restart ballet in februari but only the barre ( just like you do)
    pointeclass i could restart in may but also the barre , and i could easely follow without pain
    but i had to dance with a tape ,in the beginning one like yours and before dancing i had to use voltaren gel ( i don’t know if they have this in your country? )
    but now i have to dance with this one http://www.kttape.com/instructions/ankle-sprain/

    with the first one,like you have for the moment , you can’t do pointe, but with the second it’s very simple …

    so give it some time and you will dance in ballerinclass

    grts

    Can Mr Adult Beginner help you wrap the cankle? Athletic tape and similar stuff lived in the Boys Locker Room when I went to school. Now, in these modern times I guess the Ladies will need to learn the finer points of “taping”

    • Good thinking there, Janet, but my man don’t know nothin’ bout no athletic tape. He did help by confirming that I did indeed make a mess of a job with it though. So, that’s good.
