Ballet sculpt, Kalon barre, Sh’bam… Is it sport or dance?


No need to choose between gym and entrechats, Pilates and modern jazz, new practices mix disciplines.

The ballet sculpt, classical dance in a fun version

The creator of this concept, Hélène Renard, discovered disciplines abroad that merge fitness and classical dance. “I was won over by the idea of ​​democratizing the latter by taking it out of its traditional framework and breaking its inaccessible and demanding image,” she says. Result: the sequences of movements – muscle strengthening, cardio, flexibility, balance… – take place in an extremely benevolent atmosphere and a rather fun atmosphere thanks to the choice of music and choreography, and the pedagogy of the teachers.
