Calling all ballet dancers; those wanting to get back into ballet; or those who have always wanted to try a true ballet barre class…this is for you. Join Tiler Peck who will lead you through this very traditional ballet barre class right in the comfort of your own home. If you don’t know who Tiler is…she is a principal dancer at the New York City Ballet Company with quite a pedigree. She also has a big following on Instagram where she shares all kinds of dancing tips and fun videos.
You probably are familiar with the barre class craze in fitness. We have many of these workouts at Get Healthy U TV. Basically the world of fitness took the traditional barre concept from ballet and put an athletic spin on it. Yet the concept of “working at the barre” comes from the world of ballet. All ballet dancers take barre class on a regular basis to perfect their skill.
Therefore, in this beginner ballet barre 1 class, Tiler brings you the traditional ballet basics. This will not resemble a fitness class but more so a true ballet class. However, Tiler makes it easy for even the beginners to give it a shot. This workout has very precise, slow and controlled movements but don’t let that fool you. Your legs will feel it after this workout. You will do series of plies, tendus, and leg lifts. She will lead you through elegant arm work. One of the principles of ballet is good posture and she will cue you to stand tall and engage your entire core throughout the class.
Whether you are someone who always wanted to dance, took some dance but then stopped, or are an advanced ballet dancer, this is a fun option for you.
If you have a desire to feel like a ballerina for a day or as many times as you do this workout, check out this class with Tiler Peck. No need for ballet slippers, you can do this workout barefoot. The most important thing is to have fun.
