A man, Baby, yeah

Guess who came to ballet class?
A man!
Now, of course, Gentle Reader, none of us showed-off. I mean, that would be just plain silly. We are grown women after all.
I’m just gonna say it must’ve been a warmer day than we realized, because suddenly all the extensions were much higher extensions and there was a noticeable improvement in flexibility.

    Oh AB! You crack me up!
    I always hate when guys would be in class, I always felt so much more self conscious!

    We have a man in class, but sadly my extensions and flexibility don´t give a damn..

  3. Hahahaha too funny! He must be mildy attractive, then, if there was such a marked improvement.

    Is it really that uncommon. I guess thinking back I may have been the only guy in about 2/3rds of my ballet classes. But as of late I’m not the only one.

    Our classes this summer are going to be taught by a male teacher. A hot, funny, totally dude-like teacher who subbed for one of our classes this term. I’m looking forward to it, but I know I worked extra hard when he was a sub, so I’m hoping that it will be the same all summer!

    Heheh… when I first showed up in my current class, the women were wearing sweats and jogging outfits (it’s a casual class). Within three classes all had switched to tights and leotards. Several of the women have admitted that it’s my presence that’s driven the change. Such a feeling of power…

    Ah, that “Olá” caught me!… Thank you*
