Each workout begins with a warm-up to avoid injury and muscle strain. Exercising at the bench near the mirror allows you to hone your technique.
Choreography adapted for fitness allows not only to develop graceful movements, but also to lose weight, since all muscle groups are involved during the lesson.

“Body ballet differs from conventional strength fitness training in that it is based on the movements of classical choreography. In the process of exercising, the muscles do not gain mass, they lengthen, acquire clearer contours, not only external, but also internal muscles are being worked out. In my opinion, fitness training with large weights is the prerogative of men, the female body should not be weighed down by pumped biceps and triceps. Body ballet classes contribute to a decrease in body weight, the appearance of a beautiful posture, flexibility, plasticity, grace, health improvement - in a word, everything that a woman needs to look beautiful and be self-confident. I talk about this in detail in my author's methodology "School of Movement", which can be used by both professional dancers and athletes from complex coordination sports, and ordinary people."
