A quick review of ballet apps I downloaded on my iPhone.
Ballet Barre Exercises – Kevin Andrews Industries $2.99
I actually like this app. Goes through some basic barre exercises. Includes descriptions and video of each being performed. Not bad. I like that it is not just a demonstration of how to do the step one time, but the repetition of each step performed as it would be in a regular barre. Also glad that it is not super fast, or performed as part of a ridiculously advanced step.
Ballet For Beginners – Anthony Walsh $4.99
Not worth a dime. This is primarily a collection of YouTube videos which are available for free. I was really annoyed. Especially misleading because the app description lists all of the lessons but does not include any pictures except the app picture itself. Chances are – you’ve probably already seen a few of these videos if you have done any ballet searches on YouTube. I know I have and would have recognized the videos immediately if a picture was included in the app description.
I have been a little hesitant to download other apps. Any recommendations?
