Grab a chair, counter or step up to the nearest ballet Barre! Diane Diefenderfer is back with a fun Ballet Barre workout to bring out your inner dancer! She shows how the work on the Reformer can be done standing up and applied to classical dance technique. This class is great for everyone because it has the same basic principles of Pilates - healthy alignment, balance, and breath. Enjoy!

Diane is using Portable Barres, however you can use anything that is stable like a chair or counter.

Excellent class. Greatly appreciate the breaks to explain technique and ballet terms. Such a nice balance of working hard, but staying calm and elegant. On a superficial note- love Gia and Laura's hair and leotards, sooo pretty

Thank you so much. I really enjoyed the class. Just a side note because there was such detail to posture. I know its a dancer's thing to hyperextend (lock out the knees). You could really see that in this session, especially from the side view. For those not dancers, the calves should not be back behind the heel. Rachel Siegel Taylor did a session on imbalances in the body & she rolls out the feet standing on the foam roller that will correct this. After rolling out the feet the weight is back over the center of the feet, not behind. I had my dancers do this & they said "wow this is how everyone else must feel when standing."
Loved it! I too appreciate the breaks to explain technique and terms. So helpful to get the most out of the movements
