Ballet-lates - exclusive to D4 Pilates
Ballet-lates is an hour-long workout designed by Christie Seaver to create the lean, toned physique of a ballet dancer. It combines the natural grace and flow of ballet with strength-building Pilates to create a better, more joyful way of moving.
Each class begins with a 20-minute Pilates mat warm up, followed by 20 minutes standing at the barre, finishing with 20 minutes of simple, easy-to-follow steps to elevate the heart rate. No previous experience required – only the willingness to give it a try!
What to expect from a class:
- a workout that emphasises strength, stretching and good posture
- improved balance and coordination – classical music to promote more elegant movement
- a fun, positive atmosphere to suit a variety of ages and fitness levels
- moving with more grace and ease in daily life
All Ballet-lates classes are taught by instructors with a professional dance background who share their joy and passion while staying true to ballet’s authentic steps. The sequences contain real ballet and Pilates exercises, so you will find no barre burn or step aerobic-type workouts here, though you might learn an occasional move from Swan Lake.
