Question: This lady I work with said she can tell I do ballet by the way I walk!?
In what ways does a ballerina walk!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
A lot of dancers, ballerinas especially, are cursed with the "duck walk", walking with the feet turned out!.

Plus ballet teaches you poise and posture, and I've found that's a rare thing these days!. Keep dancing!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Did you tell her you do ballet, and she said she could tell!?
Or did she just guess!.

If she just guessed kudos to her, bc I don't see how you could walk any different, unless you are doing point exercises around work!?

If you told her and she said she could tell then she is just silly, because you probably walk like a normal person!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Mostly it is the way your feet are when you are walking!. Basically, like a duck!. No, what I mean is you are training your hips to turn out and the exercises in ballet strengthen the hip turnout, therefore making your feet "turn out" towards the sides!. But you might also walk with a wonderful posture which is strengthened by ballet!. Keep it up!Www@QuestionHome@Com

haha thats exactly what my youth pastor told me!. he even gave me the nickname twinkle toes!. haaa!.

i'm pretty sure we walk on our toes aloottt, very gracefully and lightly!. and have good posture!.!.like you keep your back straight when you stand!. it's a good thingWww@QuestionHome@Com

also toes pointed outward instead of straight ahead!.!.!.!. I think this is from the discipline of turning the feet outwards creating changes at the hip joint!.!.!.not an expertWww@QuestionHome@Com

Usually good posture!. Graceful!. Not too much bobbing when you walk!. Floating look!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
