    Many Different Types

    I have taken ballet, pointe, intermediate ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop, modern, and intermediate jazz. My favorite was pointe, but I had to stop because I had to get surgery. I was devastated.

    Felt Silly the Whole Time

    I took a swing class and I felt ridiculous.  Not much of a dancer before and not much more of a dancer now.

    I went to a "Spice it Up" dance class.

    Learned some sexy dances and had a blast. It was more of a workout than I imagined. Will definitely go again.
