Beginner barre - Cinderella theme

Updated: Apr 28, 2020

Cinderella is wonderful, and Prokofiev is crazy.

Hey guys! I hope you enjoy this beginner ballet barre. My follow-along classes are designed for students who are away from their teachers or their studios and want to do some work independently. (Note - this barre is suitable for ages 5+, or students brand new to ballet) They also work great alongside my Ballet Storytime slideshows and lesson plans.

I recommend pausing after every few combos to catch your breath and drink some water! Stretch as needed, or follow up with my quick-stretch series.
