The Best Ballet Soundtracks To Play While Working Out On Your Portable Ballet Barre

Ballet is a great workout. Increased strength, better flexibility and posture, increased muscle tone, and the long, lean look of a ballet dancer are just some of the benefits. Besides all that, it's fun! Make your next portable ballet barre workout even more fun by playing one of these timeless ballet soundtracks. Music during your workout is motivational, and you'll feel like a prima ballerina!

The Nutcracker is the quintessential holiday ballet, but the soundtrack can be listened to all year long!  Let the familiar strains of the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy carry you though your set. Try the Simon Rattle conducting the Berlin Philharmonic version from the movie.  It's exciting and fast paced.  Perfect to get you moving!

The dramatic sounds of Swan Lake are sure to keep you engaged during your ballet workout. Follow the saga of Odette, or dance along with the four swans. Try Andre Previn's version with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Another legendary ballet, Coppelia is fun, lighthearted and entertaining. Workout while following the flirtations of Franz and Swanhilda. Listen to Andrew Morelia conduct Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Follow the intrigues of Indian temple dancer, Nikiya in La Bayadere. The exciting, mysterious, and hypnotic soundtrack is sure to keep you going through your workout.  A full recording is hard to come by, but Leon Minkus conducting the English Chamber Orchestra is one of the few.

Little ballerinas everywhere dream of starring in one of the most popular ballets of all time, Giselle. This tragic love story is accompanied by dreamy, romantic music. Listen to Michael Tilson Thomas conduct the London Symphony Orchestra and envision yourself in the iconic white costume.
