Taking steps

By KATHLEEN KERNICKY
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel
February 22 2004

Rosie Mulford has danced ballet since she was a little girl. But after her two boys were born, and one was diagnosed with high-functioning autism, her love of dance and a lifelong exercise habit took a back seat. She gained 15 pounds.

Many Adults Hitting the Barre for Fitness

by PAULINE M. MILLARD
the Associated Press

In the middle of her new class she heard hip-hop music next door. She signed up for that class, too.

"I don't even know the music that we dance to," said Orro, who is 57. "It's the kids' music. But dance is dance and I assured them I wouldn't be in their recital."

How the fit and fabulous stay that way: Benjamin Pring
Cirque de Soleil dancer Benjamin Pring, 30, swapped a job in insurance for one throwing spears. INTERVIEW by ANNA SHEPARD for The Times.


How did it feel to run away with the circus? Actually, it was the opposite; they chased me. I agreed to partner a friend for her audition for Cirque’s latest show, Dralion, and they offered me the job instead. It seemed brutal at the time but we’re both happy with the path our lives have taken.

Puritan Pleasure - Best foot forward

by COLIN CAMERON
the Financial Times

The squash court booked for my hour-long session has a mirrored wall. Treat your reflection as the audience, Gale says, with a straight face.

Addition of ballet makes workout a more graceful affair
by JENNY STALETOVICH special to the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Logically, it makes sense to add Pilates for strength and yoga for flexibility to the gracefulness of ballet. They flow together easily, and the combination lets you feel like you're doing something more than just grunting and straining on a mat.
