I’ve done Element Ballet Conditioning which is quite good.

 

My all-time favorite at-home workout, which isn’t ballet is Core Fusion Total Body Sculpt.  It works everything, especially the butt, arms, and abs like nothing I’ve ever done without bulking.  It’s a mix of pilates, lotte berk, yoga, and ballet-type moves, so it’s a good one if ballet-type things appeal to you.  I work out quite a bit, have a pretty big collection of dvds, and none of them have given me results like this one.

Pilates is a good combination of resistant workout and muscle “lengthening”.

I’m a big fan of pilates.  Check out the “Blogilates” channel on YouTube.  Cassy Ho has a ton of great workouts and videos on there, and you can watch them all for free.  Combined with cardio, pilates is awesome for giving you that “long and lean” look.

I’ve been doing XTende Barre- its free on hulu. I try to mix it up with other internet vids of pilates, yoga, cardio etc.

Pilates gives similar results to ballet, and is a little easier to find. Blogilates on YouTube is amazing.

NYC Ballet is a great workout, but it’s really better if you’ve had some ballet training, otherwise it can be hard to follow. You could always look for a dance studio in your area that does adult classes.
