My Yoga Warmup Before Ballet

Ballet is dancing with every part of your body. That means you have to warm up your body before class starts. Some people warm up right before class, at the studio. Some professionals take a yoga class right before ballet class.

So, I decided I would just pull out my yoga mat and do some stretches and yoga moves at home on our beautiful “yoga deck” as my mom calls it. She does yoga every single day.

I started doing a short yoga routine before my Saturday classes because I have more time then. During the week I’m more rushed, doing my homework or something around the house, so I don’t get to it everyday that I go to ballet. But I do it as often as I can.

Hope this video helps you warm up before your dance / ballet class too!
