We always heard if you didn’t graduate high school and go on to become a professional dancer you’d be relegated to watching So You Think You Can Dance? from your couch for eternity. Wait, what? No. Contemporary Ballet Dallas knows that isn’t the case when it opens its East Dallas doors almost daily and welcomes adults to revisit dance classes typically reserved for kids and teens. Naturally, children’s classes do abound, but so do ones for adults, and for all experience levels. It’s possible to start from the beginning—or just recover what time has erased—with an encouraging, professional dance instructor and a beginner ballet or tap workshop. The school also offers hip-hop dance and Nia movement as well as jazz and samba. The old saying isn’t true. You can go back…and gain some muscle tone doing it.
