Ha, Ha!! Adult ballet or tap or hip hop isn't about becoming a great dancer, it's about learning balance and strength through flexibility. I'm pretty sure that if you can ride, you can do this kind of dancing, too. You won't be dancing with any partners, like you do in Ballroom dancing. You will have a one hour class, and (for ballet and tap), everybody learns to stretch, first, then everyone stretches before the class, the first 20 minutes are worked at the barre, then you review past lessons for the next 20 minutes, then work on new things for the rest of the lesson. I based my riding lessons on this format, except I put in walking cool for the last 10 minutes, bc I wanted my riding students to practice a useful way to work their (future) horse.
