Introduction to Ballet Beautiful Learn more about us and how to get started
What is Ballet Beautiful?

We are a ballet-inspired fitness and lifestyle brand created by professional ballerina Mary Helen Bowers. The Ballet Beautiful workout uses classical ballet training to target and strengthen muscles that dancers use in their everyday training. Mat work and floor barre movements are mixed with barre work, stretches and low-impact ballet cardio to shape and elongate powerful ballet muscles through the legs, butt, core, and upper body while building elegant posture. Built upon the artistry and athleticism of classical ballet, we offer a fresh and uniquely artistic approach to exercise, well-being, and health. No dance experience or expensive equipment required!

How can I work out with Ballet Beautiful?

Ballet Beautiful trains with members in over 130 countries worldwide through an online monthly Custom Workout subscription. We also offer single-purchase streaming videos and a region-free collection of best-selling DVDs. Ballet Beautiful allso offers exclusive ONLINE group classes and one-on-one online private training. Please check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program

How many days a week should I work out with Ballet Beautiful?

The more you are able to do Ballet Beautiful, the more it will do for you! We recommend a minimum of 3 hours a week for optimal results, and recommend one true rest day a week as well. We also understand that life is very busy and you may not have 3 or more hours a week to train. We have been there, too! We have over 300 videos that range from 5-30 minutes in length to help you squeeze in your workouts on-the-go and when you are crunched for time.

Do you offer a meal plan to go along with the workouts?

At this time we don’t provide any nutrition counseling or advice. Our approach is a very balanced, healthy one that focuses on whole foods and satisfying, nourishing meals. For more information on the Ballet Beautiful lifestyle, subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social @balletbeautiful

Size Chart

I don’t live in the US. Can I still place an order on your site?

Yes! We accept purchases from anywhere in the world and ship internationally. Please note: Each country has different regulations regarding international purchases and deliveries. We recommend checking with your local post office if you have not placed an international order before and would like more information about customs policies in your country. Please check our return policy for details. Customers outside of the USA are responsible for any custom fees associated with international delivery.

I'm interested in purchasing one of your DVDs, but I'm not located in the US. Will it play in my home country?

Yes! All of the DVDs on our website are region 0, so they will play on all international DVD players.

How long does international shipping take and how much does it cost?

It varies depending on the country, but we generally ask that you allow around 10-14 business days for shipping international orders. Depending on the customs policies and procedures in your country, it could take more or less than two weeks to be delivered. We ship to all countries for a flat rate of $29.99. Some countries may charge additional customs fees, which is regulated by each individual government and can vary. Please contact your local postal service for more information about your country’s policies.

Do you accept returns or exchanges?

We accept exchanges, or returns for store credit, for most of the items on our site within 30 days including unworn slippers and some activewear (skirts, sweaters, wraptops) if the tags are still attached. Please note, all DVDs, leotards and tights are final sale.

You can find our Return Policy here, which details how to go about returning your item! Please be sure to include a note in your package for our orders team, stating what you are exchanging for or if you’d prefer to return for store credit. If you have any questions about your purchase or return, please email us at [email protected] for assistance.

Purchasing and Viewing Streaming Videos

How many times can I watch a streaming video after I purchase it?

After purchasing a streaming video you can watch it again and again, without restriction.

I just purchased a streaming video. How do I watch it?

To access your purchased videos, log into your account on our website. If you are already logged in, click on the “My Account” icon at the top right corner of the page. Once you are on the “My Account” page, click on the tab labeled “Streaming Library”. This will take you to your personal streaming library where you can view all of your purchased videos. For FULL access to our online streaming library, subscribe to our Custom Workout!

Can I build playlists using the videos I've purchased for my streaming library?

Our playlist feature is only available to Custom Workout subscribers. With the subscription, you get unlimited access to our full library of over 300 streaming videos, two new workouts and a personal tutorial from Mary Helen every month, along with the ability to build and save personalized playlists!

Help! My streaming videos won't load.

Typically when this occurs, it is caused by your browser, internet connection or device software. We suggest running all available updates on both; additionally, we recommend fully clearing the cache on your browser and restarting your device. This will usually clear up any streaming issues!

We want you to be able to get to your workouts as soon as possible. If this doesn’t help, please email us at [email protected] and we will gladly assist further!

Technical Support & Payment Issues

Help! My payment method isn't working.

Oh no! It sounds like our system is having a problem processing your card. This can happen sometimes with certain international cards or if there is a problem with the billing address.

We would suggest making sure that all of the billing information is entered correctly; if there are any letters in your zip/postal code, make sure they are lowercase. We would also recommend contacting your credit card company/bank to see if they have any additional information about why this error occurred. If none of this helps, we would suggest trying a different card as it may just be a translation error that is causing a communication problem between the banking systems. Please also be sure to email our team at [email protected] so that we can assist. We want to get you up and running with your workouts as soon as possible!

We also offer PayPal as a payment option for all purchases.

My subscription was deactivated because my payment method expired.

You will need to re-subscribe to access your workouts – the most recent payment didn’t go through (usually this occurs when a credit card has expired, been cancelled, or your billing address has changed) so your subscription was automatically deactivated. Once you resubscribe with your updated credit card information your subscription will be live again!

If you have any further concerns, please email us at [email protected].
