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."

  • GREAT!

    This is a GREAT workout! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I danced when I was younger and ballet was the only thing that ever really worked for me. I recently started missing ballet, and I decided to do some research to see what my options were. While I do have a ballet barre at my house, I wanted to find a ballet exercise that did not require a barre. That was the only thing I hated about ballet when I was younger. I loved barre work. But I hated to use an actual barre. I know...I am a weirdo. So after some research, I settled with NYCB workout. It was/is MARVELOUS! This workout is so relaxing that I am not even kidding when I say that I could probably fall asleep while doing it! I will say that if you have never done any ballet before you may have a hard time keeping up. There are ballet terms used, and if you don't know basic ballet moves you may have issues keeping up. The "instructor" does not really offer the "how to" instructions. This was not an issue for me as I have done ballet before. Another thing was that it is hard to skip around to certain exercises. I did not mind this because all the exercises offered are still a great workout. Bottom line. I LOVE this workout, and it will become a regular workout for me! Cant go wrong!!!

  • Wonderful ballet workout

    This was a lot of fun to do. I also recommended it for an autistic teenager. The simple directions calmly spoken, the uncluttered black and white images worked very well for her. She did this workout faithfully several times a week. What I found was there was no reason to get both discs. Disc one is fine by iteself.

  • Great workout!

    I've only done the first DVD so far and I will say it felt so good to do these stretches and steps again! I took dance for 15 years and it took me right back. Don't get me wrong! You don't have to be a former dancer to do them. Take it at your own pace and you will master them with time. Trust me, you will be glad you did! Long, lean, strong muscles are the way to go!

  • Pretty Good Workout

    Not a fat burning workout, but it is strength training. The dance sequence on #2 is a little difficult to follow.

  • Better than a gym

    I took a dance class at the gym and this video surpasses any class I've taken. It's great, I love it.

  • Harder than you'd think

    I bought this wanting some exercise program that wasn't loud or boisterous to do before work. I live in an upstairs apartment and didn't want to bother my neighbors with a lot of jumping around. Considering the fact that I sit at a desk all day, my back ends up hurting so I thought this would be helpful. This program is good for the stretches and the abdominal works. Those of you who have backgrounds in ballet would probably have an easier time with the abdominal work and the leg exercises. You have the option of doing the workout without Peter Martins narrating. Personally, I don't mind it. It's a really good workout video for what I want it for. I highly recommend it if conventional workout videos with too-happy people turn you off. Though I do recommend you get a workout mat or a towel for the abdominal section.

  • Great workout for all ages

    This is an excellent workout without the yelling and way-too-perky people. It's simple and relaxing, then you realize that it's a good workout too! Used in our house by someone less than 15, in 40's and older than 75 - we all like it.

  • Excellent Workout

    This is an excellent non-impact workout, but knowledge of the basic ballet positions is essential. It features a lot of stretching and toning of your basic muscle groups. It is not like the bouncing aerobic, jump around gym classes that I've done before. It's nice to get back to basics and if you like symphony (Mozart, etc.) it's just relaxing. I've had many years of ballet and it's nice to get back to basics. I have recommended this exercise DVD to a few friends.
