Anybody have any?  I've had weak ankles all my life.  Just wondering if there's anything dance-specific that can help.

I googled and found this general information post.

Thoughts?

Y'all are not much help.  Grin

I found this link to a ballerina's site, where she recommended three ankles exercises that look like they would be helpful.  Not sure I'll ever have the control of my feet that she \does of hers, but these exercises definitely look to have potential.

A lot of the stuff I'm finding is for pointe.  Not sure how valid it would be for non-ballet partner dancers ...
