Simple Online Ballet Exercises


If you are brand new to ballet, we recommend you begin at our very first Series, Ballet 1. Do it a few times over a couple of weeks. Once you feel familiar with the moves and the music, move on to Ballet 2 and apply the same approach. You can move sequentially through each Ballet Series or pick and choose the one you like the most and practice practice practice. The most important thing is to enjoy it!

If you need more instruction on each exercise, you will find instructional videos below each Ballet Sequence.

Anything that is comfortable and helps to move.

Socks, bare feet, or sticky socks. Or you can purchase our Ballet Shoes HERE. The most import thing is to feel comfortable and stable.


Anytime. Whenever you have a spare 20 minutes and feel like moving your body.


The more you do, the more you gain. Do what works for you – you can do the exercises once a week or once a day. Elizabeth has built up from doing them twice a week to daily, and she finds she gets the most benefit out of a daily routine.

About Susan: Susan has trained in various dance forms, she began when she was 4 years old with her first ballet class, her training then expanded into tap, modern, jazz, contemporary, lyrical and commercial. She continues her pursuit of a variety of dance forms and her most cherished time is being in the studio connecting with movement and music. Susan has a deep knowledge of Pilates, and regularly is found on the Pilates reformer machine building strength and using her body to understand movement. Susan is a member of IDAMS.

And so Susan began guiding her mum through simple ballet-based exercises to help with her strength and mobility.

Elizabeth quickly reaped the benefits. Her balance and stability improved daily, her foot began to strengthen and heal, and her mobility increased. Her body began toning, her arms and legs tighten. Her brain kicked up a gear. Her fitness improved. And it was all so much fun!

Elizabeth and Susan began sharing videos of their exercises with friends who also loved and benefited from them.

It was when they partnered up with Co-Founder and COO, Matt Spaulding that Ballet Based Movement was finally born.

We are passionate about dance, and we continue to gain huge benefit from it physically, emotionally and mentally.

So whoever you are, whatever your fitness level, we don’t care! Come and join us. Have some fun, get stronger and more mobile, and fall in love with dance with us!
