my first class was Monday, and it was great! I'm in a very small class, maybe 7 including myself. I'm the only guy but I don't mind. the instructor told me she was very excited to have a boy in the class. she told me to stretch my Achilles tendons and to work on my posture, but told me that I'm doing well otherwise. I just wanted to share! :)

congrats!

Ballet is a lot of fun! How did you get started/interested in ballet? How old are you?

I am 42 years old and I take a lot of dance classes which includes ballet, jazz, Modern and a flex and core class.

Like Kev, I started at 40 and been dancing for over 10 yrs now - best move ever and by going to different studios it can improve the standard - ever tried Yoga as well ? London Danceworks is a great place to learn. Keep Dancin ! - We need more guys in classes. Best wishes Will

thanks guys! well, I've always liked to dance but I never thought I was any good. one day I was dancing in front of my friends and they were like "you're REALLY good, you should take classes." then I really started wanting to take classes. it also helps that I'm extremely flexible and everyone takes me for a dancer anyways. oh, I'm 16.

I didn't have any problem. I just wear a black v-neck with capezio tights. all I had to do was run in town to get them.

Balletlad, that's a pretty horrible dance store if they don't carry any mens dance clothes. They are limiting their clientele, especially in a city like London.
I'm glad you found a better store that will take care of you.

Yeh I was pretty shocked, the new shop (stepping out in Hemel
if any ones interested) had a few things, but the lady in the shop took me through her catalogues and got everything I wanted.
