Welcome to the Ballerina fan club!
Do you know how many shapes and variations there are that are just as beautiful as the classic Ballerina (or even more beautiful)?
This was the main insight from last month’s Pole Inversions online classes, which focused on this beautiful move.
Here are some of the combos we worked on:
If you’d like to purchase the Ballerina recordings, just send me an email and let me know.
Even though it’s not an upside-down move, it can still feel pretty difficult. You need good upper body strength for the aerial entries, and good shoulder and hip flexibility for some shape variations.
That’s probably why the Sickle-Foot Ballerina was a student-favorite last month
→ Combo #2.
If you feel like you’re lacking the necessary flexibility for the Twisted Ballerina, you should give the Sickle-Foot Ballerina a try.
Another insight for the students was that it’s good to revisit the Ballerina because your body can make significant progress over time. Even if you don’t nail it the first time around, it’s good to take a break and come back to it later.
Let me know in the comments whether you’ve tried any of these combos. How did it go?
