A Ballet New Year!

What are your New Year Resolutions? Are you a ballet dancer in training making firm plans to get more flexible? Work on your turn out? Strengthen those ankles?

If so here are a few items I found to help you become a stronger ballet dancer in  2013

This easily adjustable portable barre means that you can practice in your bedroom at home.

This wobble board is fantastic for strengthening your feet and ankles for pointe work. These are recommended by physiotherapists.

Bunheads Latex Band from Dance Direct £5.95
This latex band will flex muscles, increase fitness, strength and flexibility.

Conditioning for Dance from Amazon

 Eric Franklin’s Conditioning for Dance will help you achieve higher jumps, tighter turns and more tension-free lift by: Strengthening your core using Thera-Band Exercise Bands. The book also features 170 imagery illustrations and a 20 minute full-body warm-up routine.

New York City Ballet - The Complete Workout [DVD] from Amazon

What a great mantra for the new year, what do you think?
