As you may or may not know, I danced Ballet for most life. I started when I was 3 years old and went on to dance all the way through college, I even earned my Bachelor’s in Dance and Communications from UCDavis! Dance is a huge part of my life and has continued to influence me in my workouts and training to this day. I love to focus on posture, core stability, and functional strength. Plus I always enjoy putting on a show and PERFORM for my Youtube workouts. This Ballet Pilates workout video was inspired by my years of dance training and many of the moves we did when warming up for our dance rehearsals. In this ballet pilates workout you will strengthen and shape lean, long muscles for a strong dancer’s physique. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it for you and I hope its a video you can return to to feel good!
