Body & Soul Ballet has an incredible physiotherapeutic approach that makes moving the body fun! This adult Ballet class is accessible for the novice through advanced dancer. To the soundtrack of lush music, dancers follow a series of moves at the barre and across the floor. Throughout the class alternatives to ballet technique are provided to suit individual needs, and support physicality through a gentle approach to balletic technique that strengthens body and mind. Sarah’s class enhances the consideration that gentle steps such as passé, can help in the confidence to use stairs, or how pliés help with getting in and out of a car. The ability to move, aids in individual independence and enhances physical freedom. Growing older we may become less confident in our balance, and our bodies can develop stiffness. This class gives adults an enjoyable way to move that is imperative to maintaining a healthy body.
