I’m so excited to share this workout challenge with you guys! I’ve LOVED participating in various 30-day yoga challenges over the last couple years. I thought it might be fun to make a challenge of my own (using free online workouts of course) for another type of exercise I quite enjoy — BALLET!
It might sound strange, but those yoga challenges bring me a lot of joy.
a) I don’t have to think about what workout to complete on any given day.
b) Committing to something for a specified period of time, even to myself, means I’m way more likely to follow through.
c) The results are usually pretty nice.
d) I love that yummy feeling you get after completing a challenge you set for yourself.
With those 4 joy-inducing items in mind, I added a 10-day ballet challenge to my FIND MORE DELIGHT LIST. And Monday I’m kicking things off!
Here’s how things will shake down if you’re interested (or if you feel like tackling a ballet challenge of your own!!! plz dooo!)…

This is so awesome! I love all the workout challenges I’ve been seeing through social media – gets people so awesome and inspired. I’ve never actually done ballet before. I don’t think my feet are actually capable of moving the way they’re supposed to. I’m far from elegant! Haha.
This is going to be quite a fun challenge! I bet you’ll walk away with a lot of new skills too. I think this is a great idea.
Hmmm…never tried a ballet challenge. Sounds like you created a great workout for yourself 🙂 I’m old school and still like step aerobics…lol.
Thank you so much for sharing this! I am always looking for new challenges for my girls to work on. I coach a competitive gymnastics team and this is right up there alley. Can’t wait to share it with them next week!
How cool! I think they would find it fun/useful.
Let me share this with my daughter. Learning to dance the ballet was her biggest dream as a child. We could not afford ballet lessons back in the day. So maybe now, even if she is an adult (and a mommy herself), she can get a feel of how it is to learn to dance the ballet and get a workout as well.
You should definitely share with your daughter!!! It is NEVER too late. And now with so many free resources online it’s easier than ever. 🙂
Hey this looks like a lot of fun. Will definitely give it a try and tell you how it went.
How much fun! I was a ballerina through college and used to love this stuff.
I danced through college too and I guess I was feeling nostalgic. It’s been fun to bring it back! 🙂
