Dancing is one of the best things you can do for your body. But don't take our word for it. Our friends at Time magazine also say so.
When you cut a rug, you can expend more than 300 calories every half-hour, according to a report from the University of Brighton in the UK. That meets or exceeds the amount of energy you burn during an easy run or swim, the report shows. Even relatively tame forms of dance burn about the same number of calories as cycling.
It's not just about a quick calorie burn, however. Many forms of dance, particularly ballet, require strength and muscle tone.
Ballet dancers typically develop impressively in these specific muscle groups: quadriceps and hamstrings, hip and gluteal muscles, calves and feet, back and core.
If that doesn't sound like a total body workout, we don't know what does.
Skills and Strength
Ballet dancers are in great shape, and their muscles aren't just for show. They've been honed through countless hours at the barre, through endless practice sessions and rehearsals. Through trial and error. Sweat and tears.
In ballet, strength and skill go hand in hand.
Bearing the Weight
Whether you can bear the weight ballet requires (physical, mental, and emotional) is a question each dancer must reckon with individually. One question you should never have to ask is whether or not your ballet barre can bear up under the strain.
Portable barres, especially, must prove themselves capable of going the distance with you.
That's where we come in.
