Ballet Workout For Toning Legs and Core

Tighten and Tone With These 5 Ballet Moves

The long, lean lines of a ballerina's physique are hard earned with hours of barre work. Fundamental ballet moves, like plié, relevé, and arabesque, tone the legs and work the core. Learn these essential exercises, and more, directly from dancer and choreographer Michael Cornell, founder of the LA-based Align Ballet Method. He explains how to properly perform the basics of the ballet dance vocabulary, emphasizing the importance of posture with every move. Create your own ballet barre at home with a chair, press play, and get ready to bring out your inner ballerina.

I did not know that people train with this "bar method" to get fit and reshape the body! It sounds great! I used to do a lot of exercises with my portable ballet barre from dinamicaballet some time ago, maybe I will do it again :) Rebecca
