The Barreworks Ballet WorkOut class

Formerly named the New York City Ballet Workout before its discontinuation in 2011, this unique class combines elements of ballet training and athletic conditioning. You’ll discover a workout devised to incorporate every aspect of a dancer’s approach to training, from basic barre work to strength training and physiotherapy. The music, exercises and movements enhance grace and posture, promote exceptional muscle conditioning and definition, flexibility and balance. The class is held to a soothing soundtrack of some of the most loved ballet scores in the world.

Are these classes for me?

They are for anyone who wants the body of a dancer. You do not need any previous dance or general exercise experience and all classes are entirely suitable for beginners. Classes are suitable for anyone over the age of 16. Fitness and shape are not important.

With regular attendance at our Richmond Studio, you will build long, lean muscle and achieve the perfect posture of a dancer’s body. Your bottom will lift, your thighs will get trimmer and your arms will become defined.

With no jumping around and no wildly beating heart - and no need to shower after the class - this is highly efficient exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.
