I have been wanting to get back into dance for a quite a while. Last week I happened upon a dance school that has adult ballet classes at the right time and location for me. I met Dana, the owner of the studio, and felt right at home. So, yesterday I took my first class in many years. The class was wonderful, just what I need. It’s amazing how much came back to me instantly, and um… how much didn’t. I have a lot of catching up to do! Even so, those body memories are pretty intense.
Even sewing the elastic on my slippers brought back a flood of memories. Of course, the last time I did that I didn’t need to first find my reading glasses!
Big thanks to Shelley for her inspiration.
