@afishlikeme, OMG! An extremely distant British cousin of mine, who found me on Facebook, lives 10 miles from there, and his dad used to work on the originals! I forget…I think they are all made in Europe. Some parts are made in Oxford, some in Germany I think. It’s on some paperwork–I’ll find it. @Suzanne, BY ALL MEANS, go!!! There is a 76-year-old woman in my class and she is AWESOME. People start at 30, 40, 50. In adult classes, there is no judgment or competition. Take a beginner class–it’s such a joyous workout, and it elongates your muscles!
