Did you know that ballet isn’t just for girls? Arnold Schwarzenegger took it to help with his bodybuilding poses, Jean Claude Van Damme for his martial arts and he says, “if you can survive a ballet workout, you can survive a workout in any other sport.” Steve McLendon of the New York Jets says, "It keeps you injury-free — your ankles, keeps your feet strong, your toes strong; you get away from knee injuries."Whether you are an athlete looking to improve your skills, or just have an interest in learning ballet,Northeastern Ballet Theatre will be offering an all ages boys class taught by instructor John Ling in their Wolfeboro studio (26 Glendon Street, across from Rite Aid) on some Saturdays beginning January 19 from 3:00-4:00pm.
