Brilliant Gift Idea: Ballet—Wii-Style!
No, I was never one of those little girls being dropped off in her little pink tutu for ballet class—hell, I couldn’t even hack it in the “dance” portion of gymnastics, and my sister and I bailed on the class right before it was time to for my mother to pay for our recital get-ups. (Her exact words were, “If you don’t like it, you can quit, but do it before I have to pay $100 for each of your costumes!” Can’t blame her.) Anyways, I’ve always been in awe of ballerinas—they are toned, long, lean and have amazing flexibility. Seeing as though I can’t even touch my toes, a little flexibility could be good for me (not to mention, ahem, some toning!) so I think I’ve found the perfect holiday gift … for me. All who know me, pay attention: Wii’s “My Ballet Studio.” As the back cover says: “Learn to become a graceful dancer as you are judged on your sense of balance, flexibility, and your stability!” Yes, yes, yes—sign me up—and at 30 bucks, it’s not a wallet killer, assuming you already own Wii, that is.
