Would You Rather: Ballet Edition #1

PrintWelcome to the first ballet edition of “Would you Rather!”

I’m going to keep it short this time with five questions. I’ve you’ve got your own blog, you can answer the survey questions on their and join the link-up. If you don’t want to or don’t have a blog, feel free to answer them in the comments, too!

#1 Would you rather incredibly naturally flexible or have endless stamina?–By Kyla

I think I’d rather be incredibly flexible, since it seems to be so difficult to attain now.

#2 Would you rather take an early morning class (6am) or a late evening class (9pm)?

Early morning.  While I’m not the biggest fan of the morning, I perform so much better in the morning than at night. I’d probably fall asleep in a super late night class.

#3 Would you rather do 32 changements or 32 fouettés?–By Beth

I could probably actually never do that many of either, but if I could do fouettes, I’d pick fouettes. I hate jumping.

#4 Would you rather do a développé with proper techinque or a higher développé suspecting your instructor doesn´t see you cheat?–By FGH

Proper technique! There’s no reason to cheat it. Although if nobody could tell…

#5 Would you rather have beautifully arched feet or perfect legs?–By Kyla

Perfect legs. While I have far from neither, I feel like I’d rather have super strong legs!

Would You Rather Ballet Edition: What Would You Ask?

A while back I asked if any one would be interested in doing a “Would You Rather” type poll in a ballet fashion (much like this one is one for running) and quite a few people were interested.

I haven’t forgotten about it, and I wanted to make it open to readers to submit what they’d like to see in the first series of “Would You Rather” questions.  An example would be:

Would you rather do 100 tendus or 50 pirouettes? 

Leave your submissions here (and feel free to submit multiple):

I’ll keep it open until Sunday around 5pm and the post will go live sometimes next week.

Would You Rather: Running Edition


Sure, I might not be doing any actual running yet (nor have I for about the past 10 weeks)–but this seemed like a cute link up to participate in to help me get back to being excited about running! Cori’s original link-up is here.

#1. Would you rather run in a thunderstorm or a snowstorm? 

Definitely a snowstorm. Snow is so pretty. Plus running in a thunderstorm seems…dangerous.

#2. Would you rather breathe through your nose or breathe through your mouth?

Thanks to being so allergy prone, I’m a total mouth breather. Trying to get better with my breathing in general, though.

#3. Would you rather do 100 squats or 100 crunches? [Now take a break and go do them. ;)]

100 squats definitely. Trying to work more on core strength though, so maybe I should pick the 100 crunches.

#4. Would you rather have a baked good for dessert or an extra serving of your favorite entree?

I’m a total sucker for baked goods. I’m currently working on perfecting my chocolate souffles. It’s a work in progress.

#5. Would you rather run on a treadmill for an hour or run around the same street block for an hour?

Same street block. There’s nothing I hate more than dreadmills. Plus, I slam down on them more with my feet, making them pretty bad for my legs.

#6. Would you rather have a headache during a run or a side stitch?

A side stitch. I’ve been dealing with pretty bad headaches as of lately, and I cannot manage to workout with one of them, so side stitch it is.

#7. Would you rather have a rest day on a work day or a day off?

Tough decision. Sometimes a workout is just what I need to clear my head after a workday, but sometimes it’s just nice to relax. So I’d say rest day on a workday.

#8. Would you rather be a race director or a race volunteer?

I think I’d want to volunteer first to learn some of the ropes before I’d become a volunteer.

#9. Would you rather spend your money on running gadgets [HRM, GPS watch, Headphones] or running shoes?

Running gadgets and clothing, definitely.

#10. Would you rather run in a relay or do the run portion of a distance triathlon?

I’d rather do a relay with multiple runs than run the run portion of a triathlon.

Would you participate in a “Would you rather” post about ballet?
