Tutus, ballet shoes, leotards – I've worn all of them at one point in my life and I bet that many of you females out there have, too! Of course, I wear them only because they look great… not because I dance ballet.
“Should I learn to do arabesques and pirouettes? Is ballet a great way to stay limber and fit, or is it too painful an art form?” I asked myself as I stared with awe at ballet posters in Aliw Theater.
Too many questions – and who better to enlighten me than the first Filipina to become a prima ballerina, Miss Lisa Macuja-Elizalde? (Spoiler: I'm also giving away one month’s worth of free classes at Ballet Manila!)
