WORKOUT 1: The NEW YORK CITY BALLET WORKOUT is a program that consists of fifty stretches and exercises designed to help one develop the grace and poise of a dancer. Created by Peter Martins, New York City Ballet's Ballet Master in Chief, this program allows anyone to experience both the leanness and flexibility ballet can impart to one's limbs as well as the peace and relaxation it can bring to one's mind. Once a secret of the world's elite dance studios, these easy to learn workouts have been arranged into a comprehensive, holistic program that is the perfect workout for anyone of any age.
WORKOUT 2: Ballet expert Peter Martins brings you the second installment in his NEW YORK CITY BALLET WORKOUT series, concentrating on upper body, lower body, stretching, and much more! A valuable introduction is included, for those new to these kind of exercises, as well as a glossary of terms, and a movement section inspired by George Balanchine's ballet "Tarantella."
