Top 5 YouTube channels with ballet lessons

July 22, 2021


It is not necessary to learn the basics of ballet in classical dance studios. You can feel like a ballerina without leaving your home. We have selected options for online classes for different ages and levels of training.

Lil Ballerine - for the little ones

The YouTube channel of the international network of children's ballet schools can inspire even the smallest dancers. The founders of the school emphasize that their teaching methods are approved by the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation.

On the channel you can find lessons for different age categories: from 3 to 5 years old, from 5 to 7 years old and from 8 to 12 years old. And so that young dancers and dancers catch fire with the dream of the stage, there are also performances from reporting concerts, entire productions with the participation of school students and videos from regional branches.

The channel will be interesting for young beginners - to consolidate the basics and feel the ideas of the ballet school and the ballet group.

Smart Ballet - Beginner Adults

YouTube channel run by graduates of the Moscow State Academy of Choreography Saul Kim and Ilya Kuznetsov. Sol Kim was born in South Korea and has been living in Moscow since the age of 11. Ilya Kuznetsov is an experienced teacher, professor at the Department of Methods of Teaching Classical Dance of the Academy of Russian Ballet named after A.Ya. Vaganova, his graduates even go on stage at the Bolshoi.

Saul Kim and Ilya Kuznetsov created their own ballet studio in 2010. Today, DanceSecret can also be practiced online. Lessons at this ballet school begin with classical positions and pas: teachers talk about common beginner mistakes, give tasks and show how to hone movements in the middle of the dance hall and at the barre.

On the Smart Ballet YouTube channel, you can find not only classical ballet classes, but also short five-minute workouts with a tightening and fat-burning effect. The teachers also tried an educational format - a video about the history of ballet and outstanding productions, and a genre of dialogue with an invited expert, played by Nikolai Tsiskaridze.

If classical ballet classes are more relevant than the popular five-minute fitness sessions, you will have to rewind the episodes to earlier ones or sign up for an online school.

Evgenia Obraztsova's channel - for experienced dancers

It is possible to take a few lessons from a prima directly from home! Ballerina Evgenia Obraztsova danced on the stage of the Mariinsky, and since 2012 she has become a prima ballerina at the Bolshoi Theater. Since that time, her repertoire on the Moscow stage includes star parts in the ballets The Sleeping Beauty, Anyuta, La Sylphide, Giselle, The Nutcracker and other productions.

On her YouTube channel, Obraztsova shares video lessons for several categories of students. In the project "Everything in class!" you can find videos for the age of 10-13 years (younger group) and 13-16 years old (middle group), as well as classes according to the author's methodology "Lesson at home" in four parts. There is also material for the "advanced" - recordings of prima master classes in the ballroom. As nice bonuses - a master class on stage make-up, films about productions with the participation of a ballerina and videos from rehearsals.

The channel is especially useful for those whose level of preparation already allows them to learn from the masters. A kind of mentoring online lessons is a good solution.

Katherine Morgan channel - for those who want to get acquainted with the American school of ballet

The former soloist of the New York City Ballet and the soloist of the Miami City Ballet can be called an American YouTube star. She has been blogging since 2008 and still regularly posts videos that get thousands of views.

Morgan's lessons are designed for several levels of learning - beginner, intermediate and advanced. Also, the ballerina in her video lessons demonstrates parts from famous productions, including Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Don Quixote. On the channel of Catherine Morgan, there was also a place for video tutorials about the “technical” side of ballet: videos with useful tips and recordings from workshops will be useful for future professionals.

On this channel you can get acquainted with the American school of ballet and get valuable experience from a practicing artist.

Ballet Beautiful - for those who are inspired by the aesthetics of ballet

The YouTube channel is aimed at an adult female audience. The direction of body ballet, which is closer to fitness than to art, is complemented by classical dance lessons, where the teacher teaches how to perform pirouettes and batmans in short videos in a very accessible way.

Also on the channel you can find videos on the ballet theme: for example, a lesson on how to put hair in a bump at the back of your head or how to build an entire workout based on a ballet plie or arabesque. Even the usual sets of exercises in the releases on this channel do not look the same as on typical fitness channels. The scenery - a bright studio and a ballet barre in the frame - give a special touch.

The channel will be of interest to anyone who wants to keep fit, train flexibility and endurance, but is tired of the scenery of the gym.

Ballet dance - style descriptions

Ballet is one of the most popular classical dances, which came to us from France in the 16th century, but quickly spread throughout the world.

It appeared in Russia much later - almost a century later. But at the same time, it quickly became the favorite dance of the nobility, and Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich at one time was even one of the main founders of the national Russian ballet.

Modern ballet dance schools in Moscow for beginners offer training to people of any age of both sexes. And it is worth saying that over the past decades, ballet has not only not lost its relevance, but has become even more in demand. All over the world, men and women devote their whole lives to dancing and reach incredible heights.

Ballet never goes out of style

At the moment, there are just a lot of ballet festivals:
• International festival named after R. Nuriev;
• Dance Olympus, Berlin;
• Golden Pointe, Paris;
• "Arabesque" in Belgium and many others.

The dance is completely authentic and unique, starting with the costumes, ending with harmonious and smooth movements to the beat of the music. Ballet is harmony, sensuality, the ability to merge with the musical flow and swim with it in the same current. A truly majestic sight.
