No Gym This Weekend

My encounters with Bally have really been declining. Especially now since I am not here Monday through Thursday and all the classes I like to take fall on those days. Of course. Instead this weekend I went to dance, cross-fit and yoga classes. Hip-hop has been fun and mentally stimulating – most importantly fun. After this weeks class of cross-fit …

Modern Dance at the MET

Today after work I went to the Houston MET to try out their Modern dance class. 1.5 hrs of professional instruction. The teacher was really good. I was transported back to the world of contractions, extensions, relevés, arabesques and tendus. It was pretty cool. Of course the MET kept is reputation of difficult classes that are fast paced.

They break it down to simple moves and let us practice, critique as needed and always fun and happy. I have to say I’m already in love with Argentine Tango. It’s different from any other social dance in …
