I'm a ballerina!

Today I took my first ballet class. No, I am not kidding...I am 36 years old and am finally fulfilling my little girl dream. I have always wanted to take dance class, but being raised by a dad I was entered into the world of sports. I swam, played basketball, soccer, golf...but I always wanted to wear a tutu. Now I get my take dance, not wear a tutu. Although, you never know, they put on the Nutcracker every year and need adults!
Today we did work at the bar. We worked on terminology and did plies and other leg thingies that i can't remember the name of! Anyway, I liked the class and will continue to take it every Saturday afternoon. Oh, I am going this week to get ballet slippers and a leotard/leggings/skirt to wear to class. That's what ballerinas in training wear...even old ones!

Okay, 1st of all, I'm betting that Dan Beblo is giving you hell for having two blogs!!!! I, on the other hand, think it's awesome cool! I love the name! Knowing you, if you don't empty your head, you'll forget about it. Consider your new blog therapy and exercise for your memory.

When is the dance recital?!?!? Can't wait to see your new "dance" moves!
