ONLINE RESOURCES: Below you will find a list of online resources for ballet dancers, dance students, and dance educators (i.e. online ballet classes, pointe work, yoga, pilates, gyrotonics, etc). I thought it might be helpful to compile a list. Hopefully this will be a helpful tool for you as you explore ways to train from home.
