Ballet for Better Balance 55+™ Level 1 Seniors ballet class welcomes Seniors with some previous ballet training.
This class will suit Seniors wanting to reignite their passion for ballet after hanging up their ballet shoes for decades.
Age is no barrier as there are students who rekindled their interest at the age of 80 and upwards.
The class aims to improve balance, stability and coordination by focusing on developing and improving feet dexterity and hence proprioception, as well as using muscles that don’t normally get used in other forms of exercises, such as the intrinsic muscles of the feet. The classes are taught at a gentle pace to allow dancers to feel comfortable and at ease with the movements.
All exercises are choreographed to classical ballet music so dancers are able to get the true experience of a traditional ballet class.
