My freshman year of college, I took a ballet class three days a week for a dance credit. That's what happens when you're a Musical Theater major :)
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, I would change into pink tights and a leotard and spend my morning at the barre in my tiny pink ballet shoes. I remember leaving there always feeling very exhausted, but like I had just had a great stretch!
If I look at pictures from my freshman year of college, it's one of those "MAN, I wish I still looked like that!". I didn't look so short and squatty. Not so many curves. Longer lines. I miss it...
I really think it was the ballet. All the leaping and stretching made me very toned. Do they have adult ballet classes? I mean, I'm not looking to become the world's best ballet dancer (and let me tell you, that is the world's largest improbability) but I am thinking I'd like to take ballet again at a beginner level but with the adult folk. Not so much with the 3 year olds.
I just wanna be lean and not squatty.
Anybody wanna take a ballet class with me? ;)
