Get in touch with your inner ballerina
I was chatting last night with a fellow National Ballet of Canada volunteer who told me that she had been inspired by the fact that I, though not in the first flush of youth, take ballet classes, to sign up herself for beginner classes last year. She is absolutely thrilled with it. She finds it improves her balance and muscle tone and feeds her aesthetic sense in a way other exercise classes don't. It's great for flexibility too. All these things become more important the older you get. So my advice to everyone is: IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN BALLET!!! Try it. You'll love it. Don't worry if you don't have the perfect body. You don't have to wear a revealing black leotard and pink tights. Yoga wear or sweats are fine. You won't be in a class where other people knock off quintuple pirouettes (or even any pirouettes to start with!) to make you feel inadequate. You will all be beginners together. In Toronto, try Metro Movement or Canada's National Ballet School.
