I never in my life thought at my age I would be taking a ballet class but a friend talked me into it. At first I said, "No way." But then I realized I need to do things for me. And other than getting a monthly pedicure I really don't do anything for myself. So, yesterday I went to my first class and I have to say I was impressed with myself. No, I can't show you first position, let alone fifth. No, I can't remember any of the tricky combinations. And no, I can't recite any of the ballet terms. I felt awkward, clumsy and totally lost. But I muddled my way through it and I am still alive to talk about it. What a workout! My poor legs and muscles were quivering when I left class. And today my entire lower half of my body is sore. But I am not going to quit. I need this. When I mentioned the class to my daughter she immediately signed up for a class as well and enrolled my three-year-old granddaughter. No, we are not in the same class but it will be fun talking about it together. Three generations of dancers. If you want a challenge try something totally out of your comfort zone. You will be surprised how amazing you'll feel afterward.
