Ballet For Seniors

Open

Formulated under extensive research and tailored for aging adults, these classes focus on improving poise, core strength, memory and mobility. And above all provide a wonderful way to connect with likeminded dance enthusiasts.

In 2017 Ballet for Seniors was the subject of a research study conducted by Queensland Ballet in partnership with Queensland University of Technology and supported by the Queensland Government's Advance Queensland initiative. Findings show that Ballet for Seniors led to positive wellbeing outcomes particularly: feeling more energetic/animated, keeping in shape, bodily control/awareness, posture, flexibility, physical wellbeing, and overall wellbeing. Find out more here.

Dance for Parkinson's

Open

Queensland Ballet is the first dance company in Australia to offer specialised classes for people living with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This highly successful program helps participants reconnect with their power, creativity and grace. All levels of mobility. Carers, partners and family members are welcome to participate.

Research suggests dance can improve cognitive performance and reaction times, making it a useful treatment for a number of conditions, including arthritis, dementia, depression and PD.
