5 Questions For…Figure Four’s Kate Albarelli

If you follow our Twitter feed, you may have surmised that we are on a bit of a fitness kick. We’ve been testing out New York’s best ballet-inspired classes (stay tuned for our take) and our bodies are definitely feeling the burn. We asked Kate Alberelli, a former dancer and founder of Figure Four, to take a break in between classes to answer a few questions.

Your #1 must-have beauty product?

Maybelline Full and Soft Mascara. It’s better than any other mascara I have ever used — cheap or expensive.

What’s worth the splurge?

Devachan haircuts! I splurge on the cut every 3 months. They really know how to keep a curly girl happy.

What’s your post-workout skincare routine?

I always wash my face with Cetaphil. My fiancé got my into it an I have been addicted ever since. Daily regimen of Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum and then moisturizer works like a charm.

Favorite ritual?

My work week ends on Thursday. Every Thursday afternoon, I buy the three latest gossip magazines on the newsstand, make cheese and crackers and sit on my couch completely uninterrupted and read each one while noshing on my snack.

How often do you get asked Black Swan-related questions?

Only about once per week. The questions usually asked are: Did I like the movie? Was the dancing good? Is that the authentic life of a dancer? To which I reply, Yes. Yes. No.
