Raising the Barre: Ballet Cross-Training for Swordfighters

Instructor(s): Jennifer Landels

Timeslot(s):

Ballet requires strength, flexibility, and an iron-hard core — and yet the art of ballet makes extreme athleticism appear effortless. Learn how ballet training can help you move your feet with grace and precision, make your lunges deeper and more powerful, stabilize your core for wrestling, and prevent shoulder fatigue while swinging a sword. This class will give you a condensed workout you can use to improve your alignment, flexibility, and strength for swordfighting.

Equipment Requirements

None! (ballet or jazz shoes a plus, but sock feet will do)
