So, I just joined a gym and besides the swimming workout classes, I want to try the Barre class as well. Has anyone ever done a barre (read: ballet-like) class? Do I need to buy some ballet slippers like I wore when I was a kid?

I’m saying, though. The Obamas have been living my dream life. Vacationing in the Carribbean with their billionaire friends; spending only the required amount of time in NYC to sign a massive book deal; and now, ironically, hanging out in Moorea.
