So i thought i could dance...

and now my everything hurts.

I just had an intense week of dance classes, trying to decide which studio to join. Montreal has some great adult dance classes for all levels. I tried modern contemporary at Ballet Divertimento, which offers a wide range of dance classes geared at adults with limited to extensive dance training. LADMMI has a great Intro to Contemporary Dance course for adults, which is at a beginner level, but still challenging to those who have a backgraound in dance. My favourite class was hip hop at Studio Sweatshop, where they offer everything fom hip hop to breaking to bboy/bgirl classes. Now I'm torn as to which studio I should actually join.

I've always been inspired by dance attire, but not so much the stage costumes as the warm up gear. I remember as a young ballet dancer, we'd go for tours of the professional dance companies. We'd see the ballerinas draped in leg warmers, cut off sweatshirts and some with just pieces of fabric artfully draped around them.With all of the Black Swan hype, I'm sure there will be a slew of dance inspired looks on the upcoming runways.
