    I think whats hurting you is your abs that surround your ribs. These get sore, especially if you are doing certain excercises correctly.( My best friend is going through that right now lol) Try to cut your schedule down a little, or spread it out on more days of the week. You cant do much about the pain except take a pain reliever and do the hot/cold thing. Make sure you get plenty of rest tonight and Good luck!

    If you're doing a lot of partnering and lifts, that may very well be the cause of your ribs hurting. Or it could just be all the stretching and bending in different directions. Sometimes you can overdo it as a dancer no matter how many years of experience you have.

    The best thing you can do right now is just rest. But keep your muscles warm as well. Don't rest so much that you're all stiff and can't move at all. As a dancer, you need to know that you're going to get stronger and better through pain. It sounds like the pain you're having is something that will make you a better dancer in the long run. Keep with it. Maybe take a bit of advil, tylenol, or ibuprofen before your rehearsals to ease a little of the pain. That's okay to do. Make sure you stretch!

    Good luck to you!

    About the soreness, maybe you were using incorrect technique on something, or maybe your teacher was just really pushing you in partnering class.

    I suggest a hot bath, maybe some icing. Try falling asleep with a heat pad. And try to stretch your sides before rehearsal.

    Just one thing: It's not even September and you already have 4 hour rehearsals! God. I don't start rehearsals until the first week of October. You must be good.

    Be sure to tell us what role you get. :)

    you could talk with the government while making plans a super occasion. The hostess won't comprehend each and everything. Plus the government desires to time table the staff for the celebration. There is additionally a controversy of the kind on your occasion. around right here, there is an exceedingly limited sort of eating places that would cope with a occasion of better than 30. i could cut back the menu options to 4 entrees. the government will could order earlier than time to ensure he/she has sufficient reachable. This reduces the kitchen time and the determination making of your visitors. there will be fewer errors via the kitchen and wait artwork stress. If the eating place would not have a particular events menu then print your guy or woman and furnish to the eating place to have located at each and every place putting. As fo the alcohol, plan 6 servings according to bottle of wine and a million bottle of beer according to guy or woman. this could conceal everybody with out having lots left over and not letting somebody chug a 6 %.. As for what form of wine, in no way blush. maximum could be crimson with in basic terms some whites. Your thought of a pair of tubs with ice could be fantastic.

    i really dont think there is anything you can do except cut down your schedule. i used to be the exact same way. except i had dance, softball, cheer leading, and volley ball. after a while of it, you might just need a break from it for a lil bit... i know how you feel... i cant tell you how many times i have wished it could just get better over night. you are just over stimulating yourself.
