London: Singer Amy Winehouse is reportedly taking lessons in ballet dancing at her north London home to stay fit and look good.

"Amy has started ballet lessons at home and she`s really enjoying them. She wants to get fit, tone up and become more supple without getting too muscly," quoted a source as saying.

"She really likes kick-boxing too, but she loves the glamour of ballet."

Winehouse - who has previously battled drug addiction - has vowed to get in shape before making a return to stage and has installed a studio and fitness equipment in her new home.

"When she moved in she swore she was going to change her lifestyle - that`s part of the reason she had her own gym and studio installed. She wants to be fit and look good ready for her comeback at the end of the year," the source added.
