The Nuctcracker Audition is Saturday, September 28 at 10:30-12:30. The Ballet Center at Manchester will offer a new exercise program called The Barre This class combines ballet barre work that strengthens and sculpts the whole body. It is a non-impact 50 minute workout that targets major muscles while improving your posture.
There are no machines, instead you learn to use your own body weight to isolate, strengthen and sculpt your muscles. This class can improve many back problems because we work on body alignment and form. Target areas are the thighs, the seat and the abdomen. Once these areas are worked we will alternately stretch to lengthen those muscles. Whether you have ever taken a ballet class or not this will work for you. Young teens to adults are all welcome. You can wear anything that is comfortable. You will need ballet slippers or jazz shoes.
Class will be held at the Manchester Grange on School Street in Manchester every Wednesday evening at 5:40-6:30.
