  Ballet is the New Yoga Tuesday 17 December 2002  
You only had to see Margot Fonteyn or Alicia Markova on the telly or read Ballet Shoe for the umpteenth time to re-awaken every little girls dream - of dancing Swan Lake at Covent Garden.

It didn't happen for most of us, but it was a great way of keeping fit as a child, in the warm and well away from any flying hockey sticks. And you can still do it.
Ballet is said to be the new yoga and its coming to a gym near you. Anna Bailey learns how to become a sugar plum fairy.
