YouTube Workouts for Former Bunheads

Up until I was 16, I did ballet.  A LOT of ballet.  Like, 4x a week classes of ballet. Nevermind that I was too tall, and my feet and turnout were only considered “ok”.

And while there was never a realistic chance of me becoming a prima ballerina, I still miss the beauty, strength, and flexibility that came with frequent ballet practice.  Which is why I was so thrilled to find that Kathryn Morgan, former soloist with the New York City Ballet, has recently begun posting a series of basic ballet barre and center floor work videos on YouTube.

These are excellent for squeezing in a quick workout, especially when travelling, as you don’t need a ton of space, and can even use a chair back or dresser as your “barre”.  (Just be careful trying to do any grand battements in a hotel room – maybe skip that exercise!)

More videos are available under her YouTube page. Enjoy!
