Ballroom Dancer

I'm a college writing teacher, a published writer, and a ballroom dancer. I'm an active person. In addition to my ballroom lessons, I do ballet and modern dance, work out at a gym and at home, and have a Pilates trainer. My husband and I walk two miles every night. I have some beautiful dance dresses that I can't fit into anymore. I'd like to wear a fringed black Latin dress in a show this summer.

I do one 60-minute session a week. In the summer, when I'm off from work, I take a weekly mat class in addition.
Trust me, you will see results even with only one session a week--and it doesn't have to be private. I learn something new in every mat class, even after several years of Pilates. Once a week doesn't seem like much, but you'll hear and practice the principles over and over. After a while it gets to be a way of life!
Also recommended: A book called A Morning Cup of Pilates. It's a supplement, not a substitute for a good trainer. You do need someone trained in the principles who can give you feedback and offer modifications to suit your needs.

Excellent info. Thank you. I think I may get into a Pilates routine after I move this summer instead of trying to find and join a traditional gym. Trouble is, most of the classes at the studio I found are during the day, when I work! How many times a week would you say you need to do Pilates to see the benefit, assuming that Pilates is all or most of the strength training that you do?
