Darcey Bussell's Dance Body Workout

Darcey Bussell

SCULPTED AND DEFINED. SLIM AND TONED. PERFECT POSTURE.

What does Darcey Bussell do to maintain her fabulous body? Ballet, unlike other forms of exercise, does not bulk the body up, but rather defines and sculpts it. In this beautifully illustrated book, Darcey Bussell, one of the world's leading ballerinas, shows how you too can develop a body like a dancer. Combining Pilates, Floor Barre and stretching, this is Darcey’s daily exercise programme that keeps her in shape and ready for the stage. Pilates – strengthens, lengthens and tones muscles. Floor Barre – a full body-conditioning workout that targets the abdominals, the glutes, thighs, calves and arms. Stretch – keeps the body flexible and supple, boosts energy and improves posture. Follow Darcey's unique workout and you too can gain the poise and figure of a true performer.

Darcey Bussell is a Principal dancer with the Royal Ballet. She was promoted to Principal in December 1989 at just twenty years of age. She won the Prix de Lausanne in 1986 and was awarded an OBE in 1995. Darcey is married with two children and lives in London.
