"After participating in the three-day Ballet Bootcamp the first time, I have never missed, 5 times in a row! I look forward to it each time, and put all priorities aside for the three days of the Bootcamp. The instruction by both Rebecca and Sven is exceptional. I found myself doing things I never imagined I could do, pas de deux for example. The addition of the floor barre at the beginning and the stretches at end of the day have been very beneficial."
-- Anne K.

Ballet Bootcamp Tips

How to survive the Ballet Bootcamp:

  1. Make sure you have plenty of healthy snacks like almonds, bananas, granola bars or hummus and pretzels. Just make sure to avoid "energy" snacks that are filled with sugar and will make you crash fifteen minutes later. Your body and brain need to be properly fueled, which means lots of rich leafy greens, whole grains, tomatoes, blueberries, and broccoli.

  2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Bring loads of water – good balanced water. You may also want to bring a small towel for sweat or to lean your ankle on when stretching.

  3. Take more than one pair of pointe shoes if you are wearing them. Most of you know that the mortal enemy of pointe shoes is moisture: moisture from your water bottle, moisture from the damp tights in your bag, moisture from your sweaty feet. Make sure you dry them out as much as possible in between classes. We're pretty lucky in Southern California to enjoy a nice arid and comfortable climate but if it turns humid, beware! And if you know what you're doing, Jet Glue can prolong the life of your shoes (but not make them immortal).

  4. Have Fun! You're dancing. How many times will you do this? Enjoy it. The Ballet Bootcamp is only a few hours long and will be over before you know it. If you're loving every second of it, GREAT! Please feel free to make comments and suggestions to our teachers to make it as good or better the next time! We also appreciate constructive criticism; you can do this in person or by e-mailing us at info@balletbabes.com.
