Core 'Ballet Barre'

COURSE SUMMARY

CORE ‘Ballet Barre’ is a group based exercise program that emphasizes proper ballet technique.  The workout demonstrates and teaches the protocol and format for designing a ballet syllabus at the barre. 

 

A warm-up is performed in a standing center bringing an awareness to posture and form while warming up large muscle groups and bringing mobility to the spine.  Proper carriage of the arms (port de bras) is introduced and used throughout the class.  Traditional Barre work starts with ‘demi-plies’ and ends with a ‘grande battements’. 

 

A simple movement combination and small jumps are performed and taught in the center and the 55 minute class concludes with a short ‘reverence’. 

 

The CORE ‘Ballet Barre’ workout is set to classical music and is formatted for adults to encourage the joy of ballet to all fitness levels and promotes  grace, confidence and poise with and a balance between flexibility and strength.
