Thanks Joni! It's definitely a bit different isn't it! I think it is such fun to be able to do this type of workout session in your own home :)

I wanted to like this, but it was too difficult for someone with no ballet background. It moved too fast and I didn't know which body part was going where. Thank you though.
Kira Elste
Sorry that you had trouble Minako. The beauty of Curious is that you can do the lessons as many times as you'd like. I'd encourage you to watch and then try a few more times - your body will pick it up with time, I PROMISE! Soon it will be muscle memory!
