Recent studies have shown that ballet is a particularly beneficial form of exercise for those who are 55 years and over. Resulting in a boom in Over 55's classes in Europe and the UK, this enjoyable form of exercise is now being brought to Mosman. Ballet will help you gently increase your fitness, get more flexible and strong, and improve your co-ordination skills. Adult ballet has also been shown to ward off dementia and Alzheimer's. This course is designed to give participants a basic understanding of ballet technique, while advancing every week to more complex steps and dance routines. No experience is required, as classes will be tailored to suit all levels.
