The goal: to shape a ballerina's body and build the strength and muscle tone needed to perform at a high level through ballet-inspired exercises and stretches!
Our Black Swan playlists
includes many of the exact same workouts that I used to help Natalie Portman prepare for her award winning role in the film. Natalie and I trained together for over a year before the film went into production to prepare her for the role of a Prima Ballerina starring in the ballet Swan Lake. We worked hard to bring her as close to the rigorous physical training of a pro ballerina as possible, with a focus on shaping and strengthening her body to look and move like a professional ballerina.
Natalie and I trained for 5 hours a day, 6 days a week leading up to the film using a high intensity combination of Ballet Beautiful exercises
, swimming for cross training, along with daily ballet class, pointe work and choreography. Below are 3 mini playlists that are intense and demanding, just like Natalie's role.
The exercises below focus on building the muscles that dancers use in their every day training. They engage just about every muscle in your body while strengthening and adding grace.
Depending on your fitness level and goals, you can mix in these Black Swan workouts with your regular Ballet Beautiful playlist for extra pow; or try my complete Black Swan playlists below!
