Laschwen Posted May 29, 2008 Report Share Posted May 29, 2008 Ballet class was me..age .47...and the 12 and up girls yesterday. No problem. None of the other adults showed up. It happens. Picture this. A room full of girls ranging from 5 foot to 5 foot 6 maybe, and 6 foot 2 inch me. There I am during stretching at the barre with my leg toward the front resting on the lower barre. So what? I was feeling tight and out of alignment on the higher one for the day. Whatever. All the "little ones" have their legs on the higher barre. What is wrong with this picture? It seems pitiful. Poor old lady in class isn't so flexible. Actually, I have fairly respectable extension to the side, but that is not the point here. The amusing part is that the teacher was moving around the room inspecting everyone. When he gets to me, he pauses a second to look me over, and just gives me a big understanding smile...almost a laugh. I grinned right back at him and he moved to the next person. Sometimes, there are just no words. I do love class. Quote Link to comment
