What are the benefits of ballet?
If you suffer from conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis, basic ballet technique can help you feel younger and more agile. Ballet also increases circulation, improves overall mobility, and most of all, it’s fun! If you’re bored with traditional aerobic exercise like walking or swimming, try a beginner ballet class.

Ballet also gives you a chance to exercise your mental muscles with its many combinations. It teaches you how to count music, pay attention to subtle differences like weight changes, and as no two classes are exactly the same, so it, ahem, keeps you on your toes!
