What was your first experience with dance?
I went with my best friend and I have a vague memory of being up on stage and not really knowing what I was doing, but I loved it. But when I was eight I had some friends in the neighborhood, in Charlotte, NC, that were taking ballet and I went back to it.
From there it was a really natural progression. I was doing it six days a week, with my heart really set to coming to New York. When was your first time on stage for the NYC Ballet? It was a gala performance in the fall and we were doing the Snowflake dance from the Nutcracker.
I remember being shocked at our first on stage run through in full costume, with the orchestra, and no breaks, how aerobic it was! But when it happened, the lights and the adrenaline, it felt so good to be on stage.
What lead you to start Ballet Beautiful? When I was younger I was never athletic. I was a ballerina! I really wanted to make sure that when I came back I would be strong, so for the first time I joined a sports club and started working out.
I modified the classes to fit what a dancer needs, to build lean muscle instead of bulking up. For example, instead of jumping jacks in a kickboxing class I would do jumps into grand plea. When I came back from the injury I was so much stronger and more confident on stage and I realized I had to do more than just dance.
I started coming up with stretches I could do back stage or, if we were traveling overseas, movements that I could take with me.
I wanted a workout to make people feel elegant. You teach people Ballet Beautiful through a series of online videos and live streaming classes, what made you take your classes to the Internet as opposed to a gym? I had been working on starting the Ballet Beautiful business but then I got the opportunity to work with Natalie Portman while she was filming Black Swan and I had to be on the road a lot.
The only way I could keep it alive, and be there for Natalie, was to do it online. I think for a lot of women, for moms and working women, their lives are just slammed and they have no time to work out.
It gives them a lot of options. They can have the social option of taking a streaming class or creating their own workout, and all they have to do is open a computer.
Also we have gained a lot of popularity overseas. The most important thing for me is making a workout accessible and helping women make time for fitness and pull down the barriers of what is getting in the way of you and your work out.
Giving someone the ability to have more time in their life is really rewarding. How is this practice different from other workouts? What sets it apart both physically and mentally? What gets in the way are the bad feelings and negative thoughts.Find great deals on eBay for mary helen bowers.
