I’ve gotten a number of questions about physical preparations for pointe, so here’s a workout to help you build strength and balance. Make sure you don’t sickle, maintain your turnout (except, of course, during the planks and burpees), and do two or more times a week.
I’ll also be making more dance posts in the future, including exercises to improve balance for all forms of dance, introduction to a pointe shoe, my before- and after-class routines, and more!

Do you want a higher arabesque? If you’ve got the flexibility, you might need more back strength to lift that leg up! Here’s a workout that will help strengthen the muscles in your back to allow you to raise your leg higher behind you.

Back to school means back to dance classes for some of us. It’s time to regain that strength you slacked on over summer (no need to lie to me) and get that nice, high arabesque!
