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 Pilates-inspired exercises to create a better, more joyful way of moving.
Each class begins with a 20-minute Pilates-inspired 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 dance background who share their joy and passion while staying true to ballet’s authentic steps. The sequences contain a Pilates-inspired warmup and real ballet exercises, so you will find no barre burn or step aerobic-type workouts here, though you might learn an occasional move from Swan Lake.
