I wanted to share my positive experience when I [unwillingly] I went to the ballet studio. I had promised a friend I would attend some kind of exercise/yoga/pilates class in order to get out of my house. I'm a 56 year old woman who is not only going through a divorce but more importantly I've gain almost 40 lbs. So off I went, baggy pants, sweatshirt and shoes. \r
What I experienced was amazing. Not only were there women like me there but also women I could aspire to look like again all in the same class. I was welcomed by teacher and students alike. Most importantly, I could work at my own pace all the while the instructor was able to facilitate the different levels of performance by her students. In short, I not only loved the class the students and the instructor but it got me out of my house and on the road to a size 8 again.
Pros: fabulous teachers and atmosphere
