Ballet Class

Skills that last a lifetime—what you will gain from a strong ballet training program (no matter what your age, child to adult)

Physical

  1. Body awareness—Dance lessons build strong balance, spatial and kinesthetic awareness.
  2. Balance—Dance stabilizes muscles in the legs, ankles, and the abdominal core for healthier knees and ankles for a lifetime.
  3. Flexibility—Dancers strive to achieve a full range of motion for all of the major muscle groups, building flexibility in tandem with strength.
  4. Strength—Dancers build strength safely in a low-impact way, by forcing the muscles to resist against the dancer’s own body weight.
  5. Endurance—Dance builds the ability of the muscles to work hard for increasingly longer periods of time without fatigue.

Social

  1. Make friends—Make friends, challenge and support each other, and build overall social skills.

Cultural

  1. Historical—Gain respect for and awareness about a beautiful, historical art form.
  2. Musicality—Dance is unique among many sports in that it involves music!  In ballet class, learn about musicality, rhythm, and music appreciation.
  3. Creativity—Build a confident sense of improvisation and artistry.

Overall Well-Being

  1. Stress Release—Dance gives you a stress release and a proven mood elevation (physical activity reduces stress and tension, and can contribute to higher self-esteem and more positive outlook).
  2. Discipline—Build a sense of discipline and accountability to your “team”—so that you’re more likely to achieve your goals.
  3. Confidence in front of an audience—Build self-confidence, grace, and composure—both for yourself and in front of an audience.
  4. Learn how you learn—Dance lessons teach you more about your own learning style, improving your learning ability.
  5. Reach your goals—Dance lessons reward you with an increased sense of focus, effective goal-setting, and accomplishment. Plus, research has shown that students who participate in the arts have better achievement in academics and better social skills.
