    I danced (ballet) pretty seriously for all of my childhood and into young adulthood. If anything, I always got the opposite advice from dance teachers--that things like riding, skiing, and ice...

    I know similar threads pop up from time to time but a search didn't reveal anything overly helpful (or particularly recent).
