Ballet Bodies is a fitness studio that draws from and improves upon the basic fundamentals of Pilates, with an ultimate focus on achieving an aesthetic as long, lean and beautiful as a ballet dancer’s.
Where classical Pilates falls short in garnering quick, dramatic, and lasting results, Ballet Bodies succeeds by offering more intense, diverse and personalized workouts in a private or semi-private setting.
Whether performing exercises on the reformer, Cadillac, or other various fitness apparatus, each movement is to be executed with a dancer’s form and line as inspiration.
Officially founded by former New York City Ballet dancer, Andie Hecker, in 2008, Ballet Bodies was developed with the idea that physical fitness should be imparted by those who have learned to master the art of body awareness and aesthetic change. In other words: nobody does it like a ballet dancer.
