Last night I skipped my run and hit The Dance Connection for a free trail Yollet class. Yollet is a fusion of Classical Ballet and Yoga and it was an awesome workout. The first thirty minutes of class were filled with ballet moves that challenged both my balance and flexibility and really worked my legs at the bar. Then we chasse'ed (all new terms to me) across the dance floor and performed a mini-ballet routine. After ballet we grabbed the mats for a relaxing half hour of yoga poses and stretching which felt great. I don't think I'm headed for the world of professional ballet anytime soon, but it was FUN to trade in my sneaks for ballet slippers for the night. And I definitely have a new appreciation for dancers who make ballet look so graceful and elegant on stage. Yollet was the perfect combination of dance, core strengthening, and stretching. It was a tough workout, but definitely worth an encore!
