Candice Swanepoel's Ballet Workout

What a pleasure to look at this video. This woman moves so graceful and elegant! Light as a feather and with gentle movements Candice Swanepoel (IMG Models) gambols through the screen.

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
