As we get older, keeping our bodies strong and agile is more important than ever. Our Senior sessions are a great way to increase fitness, stamina and find a new ‘happy place’ with friends.
Ballet For Seniors
Feel better, think better, live better – with ballet. This gentle class is especially tailored for Seniors, with a focus on improving poise, core strength, memory and mobility.
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.

Dance for Parkinson's
Queensland Ballet is the first dance company in Australia to offer specialised classes for people affected by Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This highly successful program helps participants re-connect with their power and grace in classes that focus on fitness, fun and creativity. All levels of mobility are welcomed, as are carers, partners and friends.
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.
