I have also started ballet classes - at 67 - this affords my immediate family a vast resevoir of humour ( I believe my son rolled on the floor when he heard and friends go quiet ) but it gives me a chance to learn the names of steps and a challenging workout. (I've worked out NOT to do jumps.) So I take this opportunity to thank those who set up and maintain this wondrous intellectual resource. regards.

I SO have to pass those glass doors of the MCB studio and stop watching the adult class through the window...one of this days...Now I'm totally embarrassed after reading your story.

The humor that friends and family used to find in this is now replaced by respect -- and, among those of our age, by not a little envy. I do what I can, which is amazingly more than I thought it would be. I've discovered, much to my surprise, that this includes both jumps and turns, something I never would have expected.
But, like Balanchine, I still find spiritual enrichment in a well-done tendu.
