If you like music and need flexibility, it can be done in a fitness class called Bar Fitness in which no shoes or dancing is required.
Participant Mary Valente does not desire to be a ballerina, but she does desire a better body.
"For someone my age, it is tough, the balance. I happen to have rheumatoid arthritis, so I have an extra battle there going on," she said.
