Why Do Toes Curl Under
Hereditary: Often, curled toes are hereditary. Other causes can be improper shoes and foot instability causing the toes to "clench" the floor. I wouldn't be concerned if they don't hurt, other than making good shoe choices. If you are having pain, see a podiatrist for treatment options. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Middle toe on 1 foot is swollen and hurts when i curl it (feels like a rock is under it). When unbent feels fine, all other toes are fine. No trauma?
Possible tendonitis: You may have a flexor tendonitis. If there are no color or temperature changes to the toe: ice it for about 10 minutes 3 times a day. Try taping it to the 4th toe to help reduce movement and wear shoes with a rigid sole. The less you move the toe the better it should feel and faster it should feel better.

No split sitting!: Sitting in a split will not improve your flexibility any more than doing it for 20 or 30 seconds at a time. Dynamic warm up (i.e. Grand plié) will help to warm and lengthen your muscles. Sitting in a stretch is more likely to loosen your ligaments-dangerous because you cannot muscularly control this flexibility when dancing.
