    Biology Project

    Hi all! Long time, no post. I need some help. I'm taking college biology this year, and we are required to come up with a final project for the class. It can really be about anything as long as it relates back to biology (sigh... if only it were physics, that would be easy, but alas, I took...

    Dealing With Injuries

    As you may have gathered from some of my posts as of late, I currently have a nasty back injury. I've had chronic back pain for about 2 years now, but about 2 months ago, it completely flared up. I've been limited to dance throughs and strength for 8 weeks now and I'm just bored to tears... not...

    Ratatouille Floor Music

    Hey guys... I'm DESPERATELY in need of the floor music from Ratatouille - it's on disc 21 of the floor express cd. One of my teammates bought it and gave it to me to cut, but I misplaced the cd - I can't find it ANYWHERE. :( I'm 16 and jobless so I don't have the 50 some bucks to pay for it...

    So... I have a problem. We have a travel meet this year in Florida (and actually, we've had one there the past two years). The problem is... I am COMPLETELY terrified of flying. I've been to both of the other travel meets, but the experience flying back the last time was awful (lots and lots of...

    Team Sleepover

    Hello All! I need some suggestions. We're about to get a bunch of newbies on my prep-op team, so being the oldest and thus the team leader, I wanted to have a sleepover to help us get to know one another, and hopefully build up some team spirit. Anyone have any ideas on some activities? I was...

    Toe Injury - What is it?

    Hi all! I have a bit of a dilemma. I take pointe classes at school once a week. A few weeks ago, I came home with a bump on my toe. I figured it was nothing, so I continued practicing on it. A few days later, I asked my coach (who has a degree in athletic training) what she thought it was. She...

    Last Meet Before Sectionals!

    I have my last meet before our post season today... the Once Upon a Time Invitational. It should be really fun, but I'm in need of some good luck. I've already qualified to sectionals (in a huge way... by like, 5 points), but I really want to head into it with a good meet behind me. So... wish...

    I just need to rant about this really quick and get some opinions... I had a meet yesterday morning. It was going rather well, and then came time for beam. I had a solid warmup and was the first one to go and compete. Let me tell you, I got up there and did a ROCK solid routine. I dismounted...

    Search for a Replacement Meet... Oh boy.

    Hi all. My gym, Arcadia, was planning on attending the Pink Invitational here in PA. Well, as it turns out, that meet closed off registration probably 3 weeks ago, the response was so overwhelming. Not only was I SERIOUSLY looking forward to it (I was literally sobbing when I found out that we...

    Dealing With Shin Splints

    Hello All - Quick question - I'm assuming (from the little online research I did) I have a fairly mild case of shin splints. On my left leg, there's a thin strip to the left of my shin that's killing me. It's really sore, and it hurts to walk on. I asked my teammate, who runs cross country...

    Who likes her? I think she's awesome. And if you haven't heard her new song "Sneaker Night", you should check it out. It's a great song to pump you up! Discuss. :D

    College Gym for Someone Like Me

    Hello all. I've been thinking about this for a long while. I've dug around on the internet for it, but can't seem to find any info that I need... Here's the basic situation; I went to two Pitt meets and absolutely loved it! Every aspect. The team feel, the fans, everything. I would love to do...
