Reasons to take Adult Ballet

Recently I came across an article worth reading entitled, "Reasons to take Adult Ballet". One of the key quotes in it is:
Adult ballet isn't about the pounds you'll lose — it's about everything that you will gain.
And that is oh so true.

One of the reasons I take it is that it forces me to focus on something apart from my day-to-day life. If I lose that focus my feet don't end up where they're supposed to. I can't even daydream in class. And I find that very helpful in clearing my mind of all the things that are weighing on me.

Another are the fitness benefits. Although short combinations are anaerobic, I'm pretty sure that a 90 minute class keeps you active enough to be counted as an aerobic activity. After far too many months away from class I felt winded by the end of barre, and I can certainly see improvement in the last few months.

Give it a read.
