I had always thought that I couldn't do ballet as I am very un-co-ordinated. I do lots of yoga & I run but when I saw an online challenge in late January I thought I would give it a go. My Mum had died tragically just before Christmas and so I didn't know whether I would feel up to it. I loved it. Joined BBackstage and the encouragement from the wonderful Sarah and the ladies about all kinds of things has changed me and got me through lockdown too.
Before joining BBackstage Ballet, although I knew I needed to work on my health and fitness, I told myself that I didn't have the time or energy and that my injuries limited what I could and couldn't do. This group of wonderful and supportive women, under the instruction and guidance of Sarah, the most caring and encouraging of coaches one would ever need, has shown me that not only were all my preconceptions about myself wrong, but they have given me the tools and motivation to fit my workouts in anywhere, even at work!

When I signed up for a short BB challenge last year I honestly never thought I'd A) really enjoy it or B) get through it alive as I felt totally past it health wise, I felt old!!! But it was life changing and I so love the warmth and the honesty within this site. Love our trainer too!!!!
I knew that ballet/barre is good for my body, I just needed to get my ass kicked - ehrm be held accountable and finding a teacher that suited my needs.
I just loved the opportunity to learn ballet and incorporate it in my daily routine as I didn't have the chance in my childhood to learn ballet and it's one dance form I always admired and loved. It's flow and it brings me to life, it's my go to exercise, especially on days I feel low on energy. It has opened up my body beyond my expectation. Sarah, for you and the community, its the greatest ever positive support group and you are so approachable. Its group of women who lift each other up.

I used to be a keen runner, but since having knee surgery and being told I couldn't run any more in September 2018 I have been struggling to find some thing that fills the gap. Breaking Ballet is perfect as most of the exercises are low impact on the joints, and working out from my laptop allows me to be flexible and fit in and around my family and work. The support from Sarah and the BB community is also invaluable.
