Ballet Dancing Boosts Senior Fitness and Energy
Classes Improve Health
Ten Australian seniors that strapped on ballet slippers and participated in Ballet for Seniors classes for three months reported feeling more fit, energetic and animated, according to research from the Queensland Institute of Technology and the Queensland Ballet. They also found that ballet improved their posture, flexibility, maneuverability and awareness.
Mastering challenging movements and sequences made the dancers happier than working at already achieved levels. Also, the group enjoyed developing supportive social bonds in get-togethers outside the dance studio.
