Today is my official Day 1 of working towards getting back in the ballet studio. I am eons away from the person I was dancing up to 40 hours a week and then still going out dancing with friends in the evening. So I need to start small. Very, very small. I’m starting with 30 minutes as many days as I can (I’m shooting for 5 to start).
Today’s NYC Ballet Workout was about 45 minutes I think but I forgot to check the clock and I took a quick water break.
- Warm Up – The moment when you remember how good it is to move and focus on your physical body.
- Abdominals and leg darts
- Arabesque raises
- Little Jumps –The moment when you realise how really terribly out of shape you are.
- Grand Battements Front
- Révérance – The moment when you thank yourself for taking these 30 minutes to move.
