The Bar Method, Balletone, Ballet
Hello, Do you want a dancer's body? I do! For the new year, I am looking into new exercise classes such as The Bar Method or Balletone. I got some information from my co-worker who started taking The Bar Method classes. It is a blend of fat burning, strength training, and dance conditioning exercises. They work a lot with the bar like the Ballet dancers would when they train. She has only been to two classes and she felt the burn in the muscles all over. I have some ballet background, so Balletone also appeals to me. The training techniques are drawn from a mix of Ballet, Pilates, and fitness. I think both The Bar Method and Balletone would be good moderate exercise classes that are fun and effective. We could all use some moderate impact exercises once in a while, to tone it down a notch from all the high impact exercises that we do. What type of exercises do you enjoy doing to keep fit?
I found a YouTube documentary trailer on one of my Classical Ballet teachers, Kathy Mata. She is a wonderful experienced teacher. I learned so much from her classes. I may even go back to take her classes if my schedule works out. We are never too old to learn Ballet! Check out this clip and until next post......
