  1. Thank You Alessia, You are phantastic! You make me feel happy! Maybe You can help me: I have problems with the memorization of the exercises..when I attend ballett lessons I feel stupid because I need the teatcher to repeat the exercises many times and I wanted so much lo learn faster… Do you have any advice fort this? Thank You! Serena

  2. I came across your videos a few days ago, and just officially started with this one today. I'm a cancer survivor and spent nearly a year in the hospital and have suffered major neuropathy in my feet. I use to dance a few lifetimes ago ;?) and miss my ability to really point, but such is life. I'm doing much better now and a trying to take control of my body again. Thank you for being part of it.


  3. I am DRIPPING in sweat after doing this! I feel like a duck doing these barre workouts, but the results are real. I feel less and less like that every time.

  4. I have been doing your ballet videos for 3 months. I always wanted to dance when I was a young girl and now I am almost 52 and thought why not give it a try.I absolutely love it and can not get enough of it! I hope to see improve,ent with my flexibility over time. Thank you so much !

  5. I just found your videos/channel and I'm really appreciative. This is helping me to gain strength and endurance, as well as toning and losing weight. Thank you, Alessia!

  6. Wow! If I were to learn ballet now, it would take me years to be half as good as you! It was more of a workout than I realized.

  7. Bravo, i love these exercises easy and with the chair !!! Good idea !!! The musics are well known. 😉☺️Thanks for these choices 😻

  8. CAN YOU do a video where you explain basic moves? Common feet positions? I'm taking a class but she doesn't explain it.

  9. These are awesome! I miss ballet and I see a lot of barre workouts with ZERO technique so this is a complete delight. I hope you'll put together a technical "how to" of turnout, arms and posture for all those people who are missing out and risking injury with these non-dancer barre teachers!

  10. I have zero ballet experience and tried the first 10 minutes and literally was on the floor dying. Why did I think I could do this. It looks so simple but like no I'm realizing I had muscles in my legs that I have never used before. The whole time I didn't know where my arm was. Well, at least I tried.

  11. On the battements I kept forgetting to do the second set before going to a la second😂😂😂made me laugh. I just kept doin 1st arebesque straaaight into 2nd. So happy. Not as out of shape as I thought though. Thank for this mini exercise

  12. Awesome tips, thank you so much for your time and teaching! I'm a contemporary and modern jazz dancer in France and even though I love so much what I am doing I sometimes feel like I am lacking of ballet training… this video helps me to stay on point!

  13. I just don't understand the choice of childish music of your intro. What's with every tv commercial and YouTuber using it ? Annoying. Have to mute

  14. Thanks you beautiful ballet dancer. Ive just found your videos and am a bit of a klutz right now, but looking forward to watching your every move and developing some of your grace. Ive been doing element ballet conditioning off you tube for a few years in with my weights and I can mimic every move she makes, but this is a whole new ball / ballet game. I am up for the challenge. and your lovely presence makes it fun. Thank you so much. I originally started looking for ballet exercises to keep my leg and bum nice as I got into my forties. Now just loving the vibe and the strength as well. Thankyou so much for posting. I will buy your t shirts!

  15. I started with your videos two weeks ago after 15 years , this video at the first time was too difficult, so I have done some others but today, it's okay ! waouh! thanks a lot, you're a very good teacher! ( 43 years old from France)

  16. thank you so much for this!! About a year ago I stopped dancing and left my dance studio due to mental health issues, and I’ve started to miss it. I have lost all of my flexibility and I’ve completely forgotten all of the techniques that I learned 🙁 Although I won’t be joining dance lessons again, this has helped me a lot. It has reminded me of why I love ballet. It also helps that you sound a lot like my old teacher 😛

  17. Hi Alessia. You're amazing, thank you soooo much for these videoclasses! If and when you have the time could you do more barre for beginners? I'm doing your classes everyday and loving it! My best regards!

  18. I really enjoyed your video but if you would talk a bit slower I think you would be enjoyed more and I am not trying to be mean but I just feel
    It would be better

  19. I love ballet so much….and if I hadn't been 25 and with a full time job and a screwed up back, I would have started to take ballet lessons. This the best I can do at home and enjoy it so much. Thank you so much! So beautiful!!!!

  20. its difficult to see the movements because you are wearing light tights and the edit of the video is so bleached. Also, it would be more effective to see if you can one side of the camera showing you from the front and the other side of the picture showing you profile, versus two similar angles. feedback from a general person trying your videos for first time.

  21. Fantastic! You're inspirational. I'm trying to be patient with myself because I'm guessing you've been doing this for a bit. 🙂 Thank you for the video!

  22. Just took my first ballet class today, and this video made me feel the same way : I CAN'T FOLLOW !! haha
    Thank you , this video is perfect to train home and improve ♥

  23. You are amazing! You have a lightheartedness about your teaching that makes it so welcome. After a long battle with lupus I am so excited to be doing barre again and your classes are making the comeback so much nicer!

  24. 55 year old man, visit the gym pretty much daily, not looking my age at all, but always looking for new workouts, especially to keep and gain mobility, flexibility and balance. Thank you.

  25. really good and challenging, but not so easy for beginners to follow. Make space on the living room if you are trying this for the last part

  26. I just had a go at this workout, my first ever ballet type and loved it! You just got one more fan. Thanks Alexia!

  27. I Love your videos! verywell done and excelent audio! 🙂 Thank you! you are supporting my introduction to ballet

  28. I just found your Channel love it. I love to dance and I might be a little slower then you lol but I am having so much fun

  29. I was planning to head down to the elliptical and my soul said- ;this first:)- ty my friend- very challenging- I need practice;)))

  30. This is amazing! Thank you so much for uploading this. I haven’t practiced ballet in 8 years. I have been meaning to take classes again but I am not as slim as I used to be back when I was 14 years old and it makes me very self conscious, so this will certainly help me regain my confidence! I can still remember most of the steps, amazing what the body can recall after years without training! Love from Argentina

  31. I've been following for a while and this is the barre that I keep coming back to. I just love the music and the combinations. They're perfect for practice on days when I don't have class. Now I just need to select a centre video and a stretching video for my practices

  32. Perfect workout for rusty a dancer like myself who can't find a good adult ballet class locally. A nice mix of simple and more complex with option to go hard! And you are just so lovely as well. Thank you, Alessia!

  33. I absolutely love your videos! I do not have the time or money to attend ballet classes, so this is a huge blessing to me. I am 43, have always wanted to be a ballet dancer but never had the opportunity. Now I can do it in the comfort of my own home. Thank you so very much!!!!!

  34. Grazie Alessia per questi video e per la tua simpatia
    Ho letto che sei italiana, ma lo avevo intuito anche da un paio di frasi dette al gatto!

  35. I am just starting back with dance classes after a 30 year hiatus. I love your videos you are helping me to catch up with the other participants in my class! I get embarrassed being corrected a lot by the teacher, this will help me tremendously! Do you do the floor exercises also?

  36. My turnout is extremely poor, it is really difficult for me to keep this rotation of the legs for longer than five minutes. Do you have any tips about how improving it ? It makes me really insecure about my dancing, since I learnt it was essential in ballet. Thank you for your videos, they are so amazing :).

  37. Oh my gosh! I made it through the entire video…need work with form and timing but, I've been doing Pilates, which has really helped me!

  38. Ok so like every “gifted kid” you know, I I had ballet and gymnastics and violin lessons until academia and extracurriculars were more intriguing.

    So this ameliorates a lot of fucking shit I’m stoned and non-conclusive but my point is still valid! And that is this actual informative video that allows me to actualize my wants and strengths
