Choose a programme that suits your lifestyle
Are you the type of person that thrives on routine? Is your best time to work out every Monday at 7am, or Sunday at midnight? We understand that in this changing world, routine matters, and that routines change, too. That’s why we have created Ballet-lates® on-demand, to suit your schedule, no matter where you are in the world or when you like to practice those pliés.
Each week we create and deliver two new Ballet-lates® workouts, with one new workout each week for each level: one new beginner workout and one more advanced workout. Each session lasts approximately 20 minutes and builds on the one prior to it.
If working out behind closed doors helps you ‘dance like no one’s watching’, well, we’ve got you covered with our weekly workouts. Press ‘play’ and dance your heart out!
However, if the thoughts of exercising on your own leads you to think, I’m too busy’ ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ or ‘The dog ate my ballet shoes’ then join our live stream classes with other members of our amazing Ballet-lates® community. One of our favourite things about Ballet-lates® is the incredible sense of positivity and support from everyone who does it.
Each week we gather for 2 live stream classes:
Tuesdays, 10am (Dublin Time)
Saturdays, 9.45am (Dublin Time)
One live stream class is recorded every week and available for one week after the class.
Because Ballet-lates® workouts progress throughout the year, our themes change, too. They include strength, balance, flow, power, flexibility and grace, and are carefully chosen to correspond to seasons of the year. We concentrate on power and flexibility during the warmer summer months when our muscles respond well to jumps and stretches, and we start the new year off building our strength.
There are so many layers to Ballet-lates®, there’s always something new to learn! As always, we take inspiration each week from an actual ballet.

Christie Seaver began dancing at the age of five and hasn’t stopped since. She trained in the US with Nanette Glushak and Michel Rahn at the Fort Worth School of Ballet, as well as under Anna-Marie Holmes at Boston Ballet School and with Margot Parsons in Boston.
“If you’re planning on doing a little exercise in 2017, Pilates just may be the place to start. Christie Seaver’s Reformer Pilates is the best we have come across in Ireland...We’re also fans of her mat classes and Ballet-lates. This woman knows what women want and makes exercise not only bearable, but thoroughly enjoyable.”Social & PersonalBest for Personal Training 2016
“Just like fashion styles and shapes, the ideal female body changes with time...Our latet incarnation of the perfect female form has been shaped by our growing awareness of health and fitness. With strong the new skinny and fit the new fab, the ideal shape is now that of a dancer with long lean limbs, pert posterior and the core of steel. Former professional ballet dancer, fitness innovator and all round southern belle Christie Seaver has devised what has to be the most fun, yet effective workout there is, Ballet-lates.”S&P Weddings
“Christie is a gifted and attentive teacher! The entire course is so well thought out, with many different offerings to motivate and support you. The exercises helped me with balance, core strength, and posture, while the choreography to classical music was inspiring. Overall a great value! Highly recommend!”Catherine W.
“Christie generates a lovely vibe in her classes supporting everyone, whatever their ability, to reconnect with ballet whilst having fun! Great to experience improvement in posture and flexibility over time. After 10 years of classes I cannot imagine my week without it.”Sheila D.
“Every part of you is exercised, really. You come away feeling exhilarated!”Patricia O.
“Absolutely nothing compares with the feel good factor experienced after these classes. I feel supple, light and graceful and carry that with me until the next class. I attend twice weekly and really see and feel the benefits of the combination of dance and exercise. Five star classes which I enthusiastically recommend to all.”Michele K.
