Fitness and Wellbeing
Dance can offer physical, social and creative benefits to people of all ages. At Queensland Ballet, we offer dance classes to ensure that you can reap the rewards. We offer weekly classes in ballet, Pilates and contemporary dance for anyone aged from 16 years to mature adults. With the focus on fun, all classes are designed to increase fitness, flexibility and co-ordination in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Research suggests that dance can also improve cognitive performance and reaction times, making it a useful treatment for a number of conditions, including arthritis, dementia, depression and Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Queensland Ballet has recently introduced Dance for Parkinson’s with the support of Parkinson’s Queensland, Dance for PD specialist, Erica Rose Jeffrey, and David Leventhal from the Mark Morris Dance Group (New York). Anyone affected by Parkinson’s, their carers, partners and friends, are all welcome to participate.
