Interesting. I'd always assumed that ballet moves were probably dangerous (prone to injuring one). Even if done with proper form. Because there is such a strong focus on how it looks. So thanks for blowing that misconception!


Hi Debbie, thanks for reading! As with any exercise, ballet-style dance moves *can* be dangerous if done incorrectly or if performed at a level that the body isn't ready for. Barre exercises are the foundation for many ballet actions and are intended to gradually train the body to readiness for more challenging work. And as with yoga in particular, focusing on how an action looks can be detrimental. Performing the action correctly, at the level that one's body is capable of, will eventually create the potential for more. Thanks again for reading.
