Adult Ballet Interviews - Lisa Liptak

Q. Please introduce yourself! 

A. My name is Lisa Liptak.

Q. How long have you been taking ballet? 

A. Three years at Ballet 5:8, but a total of over 25 years. 

Q. Did you take ballet as a child? How did you get into taking classes as an adult? 

I did take ballet as a child. I started at the age of 3 and pursued dance in college. I stopped when I started to have a family and spent years trying to find a ballet school that offered adult classes.

Q. What do you enjoy about classes? 

I love everything about class. I love all the teachers and the friends I have made. I like the relaxed environment. We all want to work hard, but being an adult there's no pressure. We set our own personal goals and it's fun to achieve them. 

Q. What is one piece of advice you have for an adult considering adult classes for the first time? 

Just do it! You won't regret it!
