Xena Posted August 27, 2003 Report Share Posted August 27, 2003 Well, some of you may remember me!! yes, there are lots of new faces so to speak, which is great to see, the more the merrier Well, its nearly time to start back at ballet, but it has dawned on me that I really don't like the class/teacher I am with. Oh the teacher is OK, don't get me wrong, she just a bit 'dizzy' I guess in the nicest possible way of course, and at £6 ($10) for an hour of some dancing intermingled with talking aimlessly about her baby dancers, I have decided to stop that class. It was taking its toll and I love ballet and want it to remain that way. Coming down from 10 hours a week to this really pathetic, (in my opinion) class, it was pretty awful and a hard knock. My body is aching /itching / generally not keeping still enough, to do proper classes, but so far no luck where I am living now. Maybe one will pop up, they usually surface, or rather other ballet lovers usually surface and somehow we attract and things go from there..plutonically of course..not dating wise..I'm married. So I have decided instead of spending £30 ($75) a month doing something that isn't benefiting me in anyway, I will put my energy and money into getting myself fit, so when something does come along, I will hopefully not have lost too much technique-wise. So I am going to join a gym for £33 instead and do their fitness classes of pilates, power stretch, spinning and cardiokick..not all at once of course... Plus actual gym work and swimming. Hopefully that will keep me in tip top condition along with the NYCB workouts I have on video. I do feel a bit of a traitor though, abandoning my ballet class...you're not going to speak to me now....but I have hope! Jeanette x Quote Link to comment
