I've just discovered Ballet Talk and registered. I was a ballet dancer in the 1970s and early 80s (Gelsey Kirkland was my idol); I quit dancing to go to college, and I'm now a college professor of classics. However, two years ago I started dancing again; this past year I have spent in Rome, Italy. It was quite a challenge to take ballet classes in Italian, a language I can understand and speak only a little bit! It is interesting to see how the training differs from what I experienced in America.
