Wish-List: Ballet Inspired Nike Workout Clothes

Wish-List: Ballet Inspired Nike Workout Clothes

When I was a little girl, I was a fanatic ballet dancer. I even remember that when mom and I went out for grocery shoppings, I walked next to her tip-toeing, telling mom I reaaally couldn't walk on my feet in a normal way anymore. In the years that followed I continued dancing, my preference for dancing evolved from classical ballet, to jazz ballet, to disco dancing to dancing at home, as my moves have become slightly embaressing at this point (yeah well, I have a boyfriend now, so having great dance moves is not my first concern anymore).

Candice Swanepoel’s Full-Body Ballet Workout

New Workout Trend: Ballet Booty Barre (Even Doutzen Is Fan!)

booty barre ballet workout

When I was little, I took classical ballet classes. In my teens, classical ballet evolved into jazz dance and at this point, I am hooked on yoga. Earlier this week my attention was drawn to a flyer that said ‘Ballet Booty Barre; New York workout trend combining yoga, pilates, dance and balance’ (it also said ‘Doutzen Kroes is fan!’; good to know ;)). Dancer’s  body The flyer furthermore told me that the Ballet Booty Barre workout  promises a  tight and toned, but lean and graceful dancer’s body. Doesn’t sound bad, if you’re asking me. I expect I will be a fan of Ballet Booty Barre like Doutzen, as I love ballet and yoga and all that. I can already picture myself twirling in a pink tutu from one side of the room to the other side  😀 I just have to wait a little longer until September, when Ballet Booty Barre classes will be available at my gym. I’ll update you on what I think about the Ballet Booty Barre workout for sure!   Question What do you think about this workout trend? Will you try it? Featured image: source
