  • You'll want to pay attention to fatigue, though, and stop before you get too tired. You may also want to stick to barre exercizes.

  • I think it should be okay. I continued taking my classes while pregnant with my oldest. Ballet isn't as intense as some other dances.

  • OK you're a novice. Just do the simple barre exercises. try not to bend, stretch and twist too much. Most of all listen to your body, if it says no then don't do it. I was a dancer and Ballet can be very hard your body when you're beginning. Well it's hard on your body period, but seasoned dancers can do more because their body is use to it.
