As you may recall, I started taking an adult ballet class in the fall. Now we’ve just started the new semester. But it seems I’m not the only one hitting the barre.
Apparently undeterred by the ripping of flesh and cracking of toenails in Black Swan, fashionistas are signing up for online workouts with the former professional ballerina who got Natalie Portman in piroutetting shape for the movie. You can check out a few of the moves on Elle‘s website.
Ballerina style is also back in vogue, which is good for me since I have been rocking a high bun since 1986 and I’ve never met a wrap sweater I didn’t like. The New York Times has a slide show with some of the feathery designer clothes you can use to channel your inner swan queen, but I found a few options that are a little more suited to a corps de ballet budget.
