Ok, Steph wants to take the ballet class with me so now I'm all hyped up about it! I went up to the attic and dug up whatever leotards and tights I still had from my college days and tried some stuff on. Luckily it all still fits and I look pretty much the same as I did six years ago. Yay for me! My ballet shoes are really tight though- probably since my big, flat feet grew a size after having two babies. Since I was all dolled up in my gear I stated doing a series of plies I'm not surprised that my body felt like a big pile of doody. My hips are so unbelievably stiff! I spent an hour working through some stretches and barre exercises and now I'm feeling pretty good. I feel like such a nerd for being excited about a beginning ballet class but I'm an old lady now as far as dancers go though and I'm a big chicken as well since I've been out of the dance loop for so incredibly long. At least I have a couple of weeks though before I will be doing this in a public setting.

  1. Congratulations on starting up dance again, and man, on your stuff fitting you too! How exciting. And that's cool that Stephanie is going to go with you! Sounds like fun. I just need to find my motivation for going to a dance class too, although it is hip hop. Haha...
