Then gradually bend arms at the elbow, allowing your chest to sink to the floor; then raise up your chest and upper-body by straightening out your arms, the entire weight falling upon the arms, with the toes as a pivot—this last is a difficult motion, and should not be overdone at first.

  • I just love these barres/work-outs. I’ve been doing them since lockdown started and I am still surprised when each session ends proof they must be fun!! And they are so definitely doing me a lot of good. Thank you, Alessia!

  • I simply love this barre and pilates combo smooth flow and sequence define it. How I wish you can add extra 10 15 minutes yoga for the cool down to make it an hour class. So, it will be a 3 in 1 combo. Many thanks again for sharing!

  • I usually work out running and today it’s my first time with the ballet style training and I want to say that it is extraordinary lesson and I will keep doing it every day from now, I liked the way you show the exercises and the music! Thank you very much!

  • I live in a very small town, so I’m lucky to even have a ballet class, but my class is about the length of your videos and only once a week. (Not even that now thatcovid has arrived) But it’s so amazing to get to go from one of your videos to the next and just dance for as long as I’d like, even if it’s just in my room!

  • I haven’t taken a ballet class since the 90s. I’m now 64 and working my way back slowly. Starting yesterday! Don’t know what I was waiting for! Today I made it to 14 minutes.

  • hello love, I am taking your Udemy class and I would love to know what the music you are using for it. I would like to download it!

  • I stopped taking ballet classes a few years ago but I wanna start again more and more xD anyways I wanna prepare a little before jumping right into a class, so I won’t be completely screwed xD really enjoyed the workout ^^

  • Thank you! I used to do ballet in university, and this woke up my muscle memory. Now, as a mama of two kids, I’m just trying to get a workout in. It was so much fun! I’m going to start a ballet routine now. God bless!

  • After my second attempt, today I finished this class. I’m 50 and just started ballet classes 3 months ago. Kathryn:Thank you so much for this fantastic class. I feel so good!

  • I just discovered your channel and fell in love with your classical barre workouts! The music you selected is perfect for this beautifully choreographed routine.The song Piles from the second routine had me run and add it to my playlist of favorite classical songs. I’m a beginner so thank you for explaining it for us! Please keep them coming, especially for us newbies. My best to you from California.

  • I don’t know how can I say thank you for this energetic video��. You know? Today is the first day of persian year and many of regular plans are off. But your videos are always ON for me, although I arrived home at 11 p.m��. Thank you teacher.����

  • Wow this was incredible! I was expecting something fairly light for my rest day but got such a great burn I do barre and pilates quite a bit and this still left my muscles trembling. Thank you!

  • Hi everyone, I used to dance from 3 years old to 16 years old. Now I’m 33 It is so dificult sometimes for me, I forgot how to move my arms, but I want to improve again to be able to dance again <3 just for a hobby

  • Burn baby burn.  These exercises are killer. They help those who do martial arts too. These muscles work all the muscles that are used in martial arts kicks, and helps keep abdominal muscles trained.

  • Today I was feeling brave and did this with the curtains open. I really don’t know what my neighbours were thinking of me while doing the ronds de jambe, spinning around like a crazy top! Hahaha hopefully I made someone laugh.
    As far as the guidance was concerned, I loved it, but the both the explanations and the execution were a little too quick for my very-much-beginner level.
    Will hopefully improve soon!
    Thank you Alessia loved also how you blew kisses before complicated routines hehe

  • I haven‘t done ballet in 4 years (after 14 years of weekly classes) now in quarantine I though I might give it a go again! Pretty exhausting at the beginning but I feel the strength building in my legs again and your video is so much fun to follow! Thanks a lot!

  • Haven’t done ballet for a year because of an injury and just trying to get back into shape. It shocks me how hard these exercises are for me now but I’m excited for the journey, thank you so much Alessia!

  • I enjoyed your class. I found it challenging but rewarding. Thank you. One thing I wish for your video is to have more dynamic angles. Sometimes I was not sure if my leg was supposed to be in diagonal angle or to the side. Additionally, would you clarify where the weight should be on the feet? You mentioned in several positions but not all the time, so I got little confused in between. Thank you again.

  • Hi Alessia, I’m Russian, I have ballet base that I got in my childhood. I’m so happy to find your channel with right classical exercises and workouts. I wish you all the best and I’m sure that I will stay with you after quarantine!

  • One of the Most Challenging Barre Workouts! You’ll be Dead b4 Weighted Arms!! I love the arm section bc you only need 2 lbs the way she uses and angles your arms you Won’t be able to use anything more then 2lbs! Thanx, Shauna! I always know wen you post a full hour workout, or even 30 mins, it’s gonna kick my a**!

  • I absolutely adore your ballet exercises. It takes me back to when I studied ballet years ago. I started last year with Slow Barre and now this one and I love it. Thank you!

  • I did this mini barre again today. Instead of using a chair, I used the side of my ironing table. That was pretty convenient when changing sides. This barre is really great and the music is incredibly beautiful.

  • I’ve been following your Pilates classes for a month, I’m a regular! Your videos are my favourite particularly this one, challenging and got me sweating. Your instructions are precise, I would love to see more videos like this one. Thank you!

  • phew! it is very hard complicated, but very exciting when one can quickly comprehend, the steps. hopefully, i will, thank you. a beautiful dancer that you are.

  • Thank you Alesia for providing home ballet exercises now that we’re all in quarantine here in Greece..especially for the legs…..hope you’re keeping safe….Alexandra

  • Very nice!! I’ve fully done it, and I’ve enjoyed it pretty much! The only thing I think it’d make it better is to see you on white leotards or sthg that let me see your hips and knees better! Thank you for the lesson! ��

  • I am so excited to have found your videos! I am a former dancer and want to work out but it gets so boring. Doing ballet again refreshes my spirit while working my body. Thank you!

  • Sweet and strong! Love it! You guide us to the right posture and develop movements, than we get more precise! Thanks a lot! Love from Brazil!!!

  • Hi Alexia, I really love your videos, but to follow the mini barre was really frustrating, because I could have executed all the exercises properly if the instructions and the pace were slower. On this speed I just felt incapable. Thank you for keeping your channel up. Hoping that you are well. Dana

  • Thank you for offering these at home ballet barre lessons. I appreciate it, I get a little confused on which side we’re doing though. Nontheless, thank you!!!

  • Hi I’ve always wanted to do ballet, I do drill team/jazz dance and I just wanted to know what do these exercises help with specifically?

  • This is my favorite among all your videos Nicole! The barre was very challenging and made me sweat and feel the burn so much! Please make more barre+pilates videos and wishing your youtube page more success! ������

  • Please please please make more videos like this ���� or videos that help you go from beginner to intermediate. Of all the at home ballet videos, your feel the most like going to class in the studio which I miss so much ������������������������

  • This was excellent! Thank you so much for going through every movement. I am a beginner, don’t have access to adult classes, and yet I could not have found a more perfect class. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!

  • First time doing this…. Not a dancer at all, just a person who loves Ballet��…. My legs seems to be working from another body��������…. Loved the leg & hip movements though.

  • You are an amazing teacher (not easy to do!). Thank you so much for the time and effort in making these videos. They (and you) have literally changed my life.

  • i love this class but as a newbie i really have nooo hip strength to lift my legs to the side so i’ve never been able to finish it:( any suggestions? also i don’t know if it’s ok to rely on the barre as much as i do, cause otherwise i can’t lift at all

  • I enjoyed this SO much! Thank you! Its been 13 years since I did ballet and this took me right back. It’s amazing how it just comes flooding back like riding a bike. In my element! Thank you again xx

  • This brings me back so many childhood memories �������� I stop dancing 5 years ago and I can’t just leave it out of my life. I started watching your video and I had to quickly pause to look for my dance gear ���� I’m so glad I found this jewel of a video��

  • I stopped dancing ballet(which was my only workout) for 8 months but now I regret it lol this is helping a lot to get into it again (Im intermediate/advanced but I’ve got no more muscle to do the combinations aaaa) Thanks <33

  • I’m trying to get back in ballet as a teen and these videos are so helpful. Out of curiosity, was that first song from Les Miserables? It sounded like it was and I’m just curious. Thanks again! ��

  • Hi, ever since quarantine started I’ve been using your ballet barres everyday. I love them! Can you make some more beginner ballet barres? Just so we have more choices because I have done most of your beginner barres. Thx!

  • I appreciate this basic barre. I am returning to ballet after 40 years. Former professional dancer SAB trained. Struggling with turnout and flexibility. Appreciate the slow pace and fundamentals

  • How come the furthest my demi plie goes is how far her’s goes at 0:53 when she begins to do it while my sister who has never done dance can do a full demi plie like her?

  • I LOVE IT! Last time I had a ballet class I was 9 years old and now I`m about to become 39. I`ve always loved dancing but have never been back to ballet classes. Thanks so much, I felt like a little girl again.

  • I just graduated from high school this year. I never even did ballet, I did colorguard in high school, but I’ve always been a huge ballet fan. I followed some of your videos during my seasons to strengthen my legs, my balance, and improve my turnout and flexibility. With quarantine and everything, I’ve been following these barre videos every week just for fun and to keep my strength and flexibility. I love your videos, keep doing great!:)

  • I studied ballet for 30 years but when I had my daughter 8 years ago I stopped. This was a great class! It was very challenging for me, someone who was once “advanced” but is coming back to ballet after many years away!

  • Shauna, I am loving your work outs! I use to be runner, but then I developed some knee troubles. Barre has proven to be equally challenging and has provided me with a way to workout without straining my knees. This particular workout was great, except that I had trouble doing the lunge series. Do you have any ideas about some modifications that I might do or optional exercises? I am fine with the opening lunges, but the second series gets a little tough. I’d love any input you may have! Thanks!!!

  • I’ve always wondered. Is a 5th position one that takes time to perfectly aquire? aside from some who are able to do it in less amount of time. Like the jetes and grande jetes and battements etc.?/
    opinions are welcomely appreciated. as it helps me see most ballet dancers experiences.

  • Wonderful workouts thank you Nicole. Your gentle manner and calming voice is so much nicer than the over-loud, screechy instructors on youtube. Thank you, thank you.

  • Kathryn, I’ve always fancied myself as a ballet dancer! (I’m 54 now))! I’m absolutely loving your videos and simple instructions here in the UK (and humour ��). Thank you so much xxx

  • Nicole, your workouts are simply the best! Love the variety and your approach. Thank you for putting these gems out for all of us ��

  • i’m 15 and i love ballet, but i feel as if i’m too old to get started in it. i took classes when i was younger, but had to stop due to family issues. i regret not starting again. any tips to help me improve in ballet?

  • Loved this barre class so much Nicole! I’d be curious to know where you teach in Sydney as I would love to work out with you when everything starts re-opening:) All the best & thank you <3

  • You are so good and your voice is so calming! You manage to push me without all the shouting that most instructors do ( which I hate!) Love love love this workout and cannot wait to see more like this one! Perfect lenght and the combination of Pilates + Barre rocks!:)

  • Hi Nicole. Your classes are perfect for me. I am preparing for a big surgery in a few weeks and I am getting my body as strong as possible for a speedy recovery. Thank you for being a part of it.

  • J’adore! Je parles français mais je comprends très bien quand même parce que tu explique très très bien!!! C’est super!!! Je me suis abonnée TOUT DE SUITE.

  • Thank you so much! It has been so long since I practice ballet but I feel like just found my way back to ballet, thanks to you!!

  • Does anybody have tips for being extra gentle on the knees / hips after being away from ballet for a while? Thanks so much for this video. It’s so hard to find actually beginner workouts. Exactly what I need to survive 2020.

  • Ok so I have just started doing ballet and now I know my mum warned me about it and how I should of started at a younger age my arms are dead.:)

  • Hi Nicole, I recently found you and I am glad. I really enjoy your workouts and your way of teaching, didn’t find similar to you in YouTube. If you can do classic pilates workout I will be grateful. ��

  • Do you have any tips for people who used to be intermediate/advanced but quit and are now coming back to it? I went to CPYB until 3 years ago and I’ve really been missing it

  • This was an amazing class. I want to thank you for having these classes online as they have been essential for me during this pandemic. Your classes are challenging but your calm energy makes this experience smooth and really enjoyable. Thank you!

  • Wow; I just found your channel and I love it! I just finished this workout in my backyard surrounded by creation
    and absolutely loved it. You’re so encouraging and talented!

  • Thank you for sorting out the audio for your videos! It automatically puts your classes above most others on here. My ears appreciate it! These classes are great too. Many thanks!:)

  • I love dance so much and it’s hard to find classes that fit my schedule living in a small town. I love the mini barre workout and look forward to trying more of your workouts!

  • The develope song sounds oddly like Futari no Kimochi to me. It’s just different enough that I feel like I know it but can’t place it.

  • Thank you so much for this video:) You are so warm and friendly:) I just started learning Ballet at my dance school this year, then we had to stay at home so this video is so helpful to me as an absolute beginner in Ballet:)

  • I quit doing ballet a few years ago, because almost my entire class stopped doing ballet because they didn’t have time for it anymore. They only ones who stayed were the ones who were really talented. Unfortunately they were also mean and liked to belittle people like me who aren’t I skilled as they are. The teacher also adjusted everything to their skill level, which was way more challenging than I could handle. These things led to me feel insecure about myself and not enjoying ballet class anymore. I thought to myself I do ballet as hobby not to be a pro, meanwhile I don’t even look forward to doing ballet anymore, so why am I still doing this. So I made the tough decision to stop after 15 years of doing it.
    I don’t miss my class, but I do miss ballet itself. So thank you these excersises are perfect for me ☺️

  • Just a tip for advanced dancers, do this without a barre so you can do centre as well. Your balance will improve so much after just one time trying it like this.

  • Hi Nicole! I’ve been enjoying this class so much! (I do it at the kitchen counter.) I just featured it in my What I Eat in a Day vlog hope it’ll bring you more views and fans! Here’s my vlog, in case you wanted to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2Frp7V7kfo&feature=youtu.be

  • This makes me so happy! The exact sort of work out I was looking for as someone who loved ballet, took a break from it for 10+ years, and has struggled to find a decent beginners class IRL (and doesn’t have the time or money to attend one multiple times per week). Perfect for breaking a bit of a sweat, gently rediscovering long lost ballet muscles, and simply enjoying the basics. Thank you!

  • Thanks to quarantine, I’m back in my ballet slippers dancing away in my kitchen. Thank you for your perfectly guided class and adorable co-star.

  • Thank you so much.
    I started ballet classes a couple of monthes before the lockdown and had to stop just when I was getting started. I keep coming back to this video a couple of times a week to keep practicng.
    The last few combinations are very difficult though, I can’t really get them right, they are in a higher level from our adults begginer class for sure.

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH KATHRYN!! please dont mind me being annoying, but I’m crazy sick of being stuck at home during quarantine living like a couch potato, I’ve decided to take up the 30 days challenge for your ballet courses to change up my lifestyle (despite being stuck at home)… and I’m gonna record every day’s work and progress, thoughts and stuff in all the videos that I’ll do hehe (sorry for channel-spamming)

    background: been doing ballet on the weekends on and off since I was like 8 (?) I’ve never committed myself tho so now I literally still just goto beginner/ intermediate classes for adults (so sad:'( )

    !!!30 DAY CHALLENGE!!!
    day 1(June 2nd) done: Classical Ballet Barre | Intermediate Advanced At Home Workout | YAGP Video
    day 2(June 5th) -done: Beginner Ballet Barre | At Home Ballet Class Workout | Kathryn Morgan (ok I skipped 2 days but at least I’m back now!!)

  • It’s been about 14 year since i did ballet last and omg i missed it so much, it amazes me how much i rmember and also how much i can’t do lol

  • omg. i forgot how much i LOVE barre. i am covered in sweat and shaking!! Please do more of these mixed barre/pilates classes, you are seriously the best!

  • Your classes are so well taught! I greatly miss the yoga and aerial studio, but your classes scratch that itch for me of challenging, but fun, and low impact fitness. Thank you!

  • This was EXACTLY the kind of ballet video I was hoping to find! I did dance as a teenager about 15 years ago, but when I tried again as an adult I was very overwhelmed and found it hard to follow along. This was so easy to follow and I was surprised how much I remembered from back then/watching through Dance Academy about 20 times! I’m trying to get more creative with exercising and finding things that I will actually WANT to do, and this was a great place to start!

  • Hi Nicole, I love all your videos! you are such a good instructor and it’s easy to follow the breathing directives, which have always been a struggle for me. Do you teach virtually anywhere?

  • This was my first time trying Barre, and this workout was AMAZING!! I did it on Sunday and again today, and I love it! My dog enjoys working out with me as well. Thank you so much!

  • It’s been a little over twelve years since I’ve danced. And I have to say, I am so happy that I found your
    videos, thank you so much for sharing! ♥

  • I love this! Thank you for being so generous, so helpful and so good-humored! You help me love dancing again and I am so grateful.

  • Me: please no more fifth position I’m dying
    Kathryn: I’m about to end this mans whole career

    Ok but seriously can someone please explain to me how one does fifth position?? My feet just dont bend that way whenever i try it looks like some deformed mix between third and fourth position

  • You’re workouts are perfect! Your calm approach to coaching makes all the difference. Barre + Pilates is a no-brainer. Brings on the sweats immediately! Appreciate your vids so much! Hope to see more Barre related vids in the near futurethey’re a killer x

  • This is a great class! Thank you Nicole. I like how it’s broken down onto two distinct segments. I could feel this workout the next morning ����

  • Is this something I can do with no ballet experience? I have done a lot of jazz and contemporary though. But nothing like this. And I’m 26, does that matter?

  • Can we do this type of workouts even if we are not dancers?? I want to try new workout routines since I got injured for the high impact ��

  • Thank you for this wonderful barre & pilates class! Challenging yet elegant. I especially liked the pace of the exercises, which definitely made me feel the burn but held room for focusing on good posture (straight spine!).

  • What an amazing class! Thank you so much! (And thank you for making it over a half an hour so that we can really get a full work out.) <3

  • I am dripping of sweat! I never know what to expect from your classes but one think I know they push me Beyond my limits. Thank you!! You are my favorite teacher ����☺️!

  • This was amazing. I have been lifting weights but wanted to incorporate something new to my workouts. I have never tried pilates before and this had me shaaaking and sweating! I immediately subscribed after this workout finished and will be adding your workouts to my routine! Thank you!!

  • Kathryn, I’ve always fancied myself as a ballet dancer! (I’m 54 now))! I’m absolutely loving your videos and simple instructions here in the UK (and humour ��). Thank you so much xxx

  • Alright y’all. Finances and corona don’t want me to do ballet. I’m 18 years old. My ankles are inflexible, my turnout is terrible, and my balance is non-existent. I’ve never taken a ballet class in my life.
    I’m gonna try to do this myself every single day at home. When I eventually get to a real class, my teacher will have it easy!

  • ohmygosh. I just love you. I love your humor and your personality and your…. cuteness!!!! THANK YOU for being you. Every time I do one of your videos, I literally say out loud, “God, would you bless Alesia? She brings so much joy to the world. Go get her, Jesus!!” Sending you so much love <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  • love it, great thumping music, and a beautiful figure to guide you in perhaps for me, a little bit complicated. but i study hard at each bracket, to remember each step. thank you.

  • I just found your channel a few days ago and you are amazing. I love your classes. I’m going through cancer treatment and this has helped me so much! Im used to dance classes, Pilates and strength training and I feel I get all of these with you. I pick a new class everyday.

  • All your lazy ballet workouts are a bright spot during this corona era in NYC. I had never taken ballet before but you make the steps scaleable and approachable. Brava! I love the cat sightings too.

  • Thank you very much for your classes, Nicole! I love all of them! I especially enjoy with the barre and pilates workouts: the combination of my two favourite disciplines!

  • Just started doing your workouts this week, they are incredible! Please please keep them coming! Thank you for posting these, I’ve never done a workout like them before!
