My Adult Ballet Classes are not committed to any syllabus. Attention is focused on toning and strengthening the core muscles of the stomach and back whilst learning the fundamentals of classical ballet technique. I also offer pure ballet classes for adults with a particular emphasis on a safe and posture enhancing methodology.

Benefits include improved posture and muscular strength as well as optimal flexibility and mobility of the joints. Not only will you look longer and leaner, you will also move with increased grace and gain a sense of general well-being.

Physical Benefits

Compared to many other physical exercises, dance provides a more comprehensive mix of motion, co-ordination, endurance and strength. Even if dance isn’t your ultimate goal, ballet lessons improve posture, flexibility, coordination, strength and grace.

Emotional Benefits

Ballet teaches discipline and confidence, developing emotional maturity. As new skills and competences are gained, so personal confidence becomes enhanced.

Cognitive Benefits

Ballet exercises can have cognitive benefits; developing musicality and rhythm through co-ordinating your body to music and improving memory and mental dexterity by recalling steps and dances.

Ballet And You!

It is well recognised that ballet exercises improve overall flexibility, muscle strength and tone with the advantage of working the entire body bringing particular benefits to abdominal strengthening and posture improvement.
It can also be a hugely effective outlet for relieving stress and anxiety! As well as detoxing through exercise, it also decreases the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and heart disease.
