A ballerina must practice for hundreds of hours in order to perfect her movements, much as a geneticist must create hundreds of abominations before perfecting a clone of his childhood cat. Try, try again with this Groupon.

Scottsdale Adult Ballet Fitness
At Scottsdale Adult Ballet Fitness, John McAttee brings more than 30 years of teaching experience, as well as several teaching awards, to the ballet barre. During his ballet-fitness classes, John strictly adheres to the Cecchetti method—developed by Italian ballet master Enrico Cecchetti—as he leads fitness-seekers and dancers alike through body-sculpting dance steps. Though his classes are technically fitness-based, he remains true to this time-honored ballet method and artistry. He teaches his students to internalize and retain ballet's basic principles and form while performing each plié, tendu, and swan dive. Each ballet-fitness class is open to all students, though he teaches them in two levels, modifying movements to suit the needs of the students.
Though these ballet-fitness classes are the studio's bread and butter, John also holds private lessons, Broadway-style jazz sessions, and East Coast swing dance classes.
