Motivated by both a desire to try new things, and the need to learn the “language” of ballet for my research, I participated in my first ever ballet class today. Up to now I have been reading how many adult males have tried it and really enjoyed it – although most are a lot younger than me. For me, they were correct. The class definitely met my expectations and I look forward to many more. The class was taught by Tibor Horvath who I found to be a teacher who really engages with adult beginners whilst seriously addressing the need for students to learn correctly. Thanks Tibor, I will be back. The class was presented by Roseville Ballet & Performing Arts.
