Wait I thought this was Pilates class…
Hey there! This is my first blog ever – so please have patience with me.
I enrolled in what I thought was a community Pilates class at a local college that specializes in performing arts. I was wrong. I accidentally enrolled in Beginner Adult Ballet: Fundamentals 0-2 Years. What my husband found even more hilarious, was that I did not realize this until the second class. I did not think much of the fact that 70% of the class wore leotards, tights, and ballet shoes. No biggie – so did the models in my Pilates book. I did think it was odd that we never got out any mats, never performed any exercises lying on the floor, but thought, “Who knows – maybe that would happen in week 2.”
So…week 2 and our class was combined with the Open Ballet because their instructor was sick. These gals were good – well at least they impressed my clumsy self. Only then did it dawn on me that something was off. Why would they combine such classes and why were we all expected to perform ballet moves? “Ah-ha,” says self , “This is not Pilates!!!”
I am now an Adult Ballet Beginner at age 29 and a complete BALLETNERD.
