Trying to find title of this workout HELP

Hello, everyone!

Several years ago during the height of the barre/ballet workout craze there was a dvd that I was interested in purchasing, but I forgot the title AND the instructor. I can describe a small clip I saw to see if it jogs anyone’s memory. The instructor was an older ballerina and I think she might have been African American (not Ms. Copeland, she’s too young). The instructor was solo, dressed in I think dark clothing. It was a ballet barre-ish workout and I believe she might have had a chair for support. The background was a home library, bright lighting with windows. Does this sound familiar? I believe this workout may have come out about the same time as Ballet Fitness by Jennee aka death by 2nd position.

Thanks for any leads that help,

Hmmm...the only one I can think of is Janice Kennard but I don't think she was in a library.

Janice Lennard is her name, and if it wasn't a library, it was something with a similar vibe. Let me find a link... If that's the one, it is a really good DVD.

Oh! Never mind the inflated Amazon price. It's still normal price on her site: https://janicelennard.com/

Here's a clip: this seems to cover all three of her DVDs, yoga, pilates, and ballet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUNLFO8A6F4

Trudie Styler?

Zayna Gold?

Dr. Lisa Masterson?

There’s another who I can picture. Very lean, in great shape. I almost ordered her DVD but cannot remember her name!

Ah, I think we have a winner!! Thank you! 🙏🏻🙏🏻 I was burning my brain up trying to locate this workout! Strange how I thought it was a library and that she had short dark hair. 😁

Now I need to do this DVD soon. I remember thinking it's a candidate for my desert island DVD ("if you could only have one...") but since I take lots of live classes and do my own yoga practices without media, I haven't done this one for way too long. Thanks Fatkat!

I’ll be getting the download! It was on my “to-try” list, but life got in the way and I forgot how to find it again. I really wanted a slower tempo beginner ballet workout. I’m so happy!

Laura, is it the yoga one that you think is a desert island candidate? Can you explain what it is you like about it?
