I joined an adult hip hop class after having not danced since I was a young kid. It was a blast. I was not good at all, but everyone in the class was at the same level and we all just had a good time. If it’s something you’re interested in, go for it!

That sounds so fun!! I want to be in an environment with no judgment so I’m looking forward to it

I think as long as your reasons make sense, it’s never too late to start anything. By that I mean, if you’re going in to dance as an adult with the intention of becoming a professional in a company, that’s going to be a difficult road. If you’re doing it because it’s fun, or exercise you enjoy or artistic expression then there is no too late. Do it and enjoy!

It would just be for fun and a nice form of exercise!

I went to an adult ballet class after about 12 years away and no training in that time. It was a mixed group, most people are there for fun and personal fulfillment, not to judge your technique etc. I say go and enjoy! I’ve been missing it again and want to go back at some point.

This is similar to my situation. I’m definitely going to do it now! I hope you go back at some point!

Yes I did this! Picked up ballet again in my late 30s. The studio I went to was so much fun and totally judgment-free.

I’m fairly new to the game and didn’t take any risk off since November.

Question: for playing Calls for the relief rally, the VIX is quite high rn so how far of a duration would you play? I didn’t short at all on the way down since I was observing and undertaking the dynamics here, but am ready to get in.

I’m a SPED teacher, & my principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?
