Body Ballet® has 3 parts
Body Ballet® was created for YOU
Anna created Body Ballet® because friends and parents of her dancer students asked for a class for ‘them.’ Some were mothers of young children. Some were former dancers coming back from injuries or an absence from the dance world. Others, including cancer survivors, wanted to strengthen and rediscover the joy of their bodies. Still others wanted the chance to learn an art form with a new method of fitness.
We believe Body Ballet® will greatly contribute to:
- Increased self-confidence and pride in your body
- Strong back and abdominals for improved posture
- Greater balance and coordination
- Improved overall body flexibility for long-lasting health
Hands-on placement with personal corrections is a vital part of Anna’s teaching. She uses her knowledge and passion for dance and fitness to create a positive and supportive environment where transformation is not only encouraged but openly experienced. Body Ballet® is a safe and energizing ballet workout and the most popular program at CDAB.
