What will this Ballet classes do for you?
In ballet, every inch of your muscles is actively engaged in movements. Many ballet students find that they end up shedding some fat and having well-toned muscles after having started regular training.
Another benefit of ballet is that it does wonders to your posture. As the basic requirement of ballet is to have a neutral stance with the spine straightened and hips "squared" (meaning, parallel on both sides), this posture is going to have a "spillover" effect on your day-to-day posture.
Besides the beautiful look, a good posture is extremely important in staying healthy. Many pain syndromes that people living a sedentary lifestyle experience are a result of poor posture and musculo-skeletal dysfunction.
In ballet we get to move along with music and make beautiful patterns with our bodies. We use a lot of "brainpower" to remember the steps and to coordinate the different body parts. For example, we exercise the left brain for getting the "mathematical" parts - the logic of the step combinations - right; the right brain for interpreting the music and expressing our body in an artistic manner; the upper rear portion of the brain for interpreting spatial relationships; and the lower part of the brain for memorizing the steps.
