Ballet and Health

Ballet is an incredible option for the improvement of health and the orientation for a healthier lifestyle; many people choose it as a way to leave behind their sedentary ways, but those that have chosen Ballet as a lifestyle are living proof of the wonderful things that they feel happen to their body.

The tremendous health advantages of Ballet include:
  • An anti-sedentary lifestyle exercice who improves your Basal Metabolic Range index (BMR). Learn what is BMR and why you must pay attention to this index.
  • A perfect posture that keeps pain syndromes at bay.
  • Complete bodywork that stimulates circulation and keeps cholesterol at bay.
  • Ballet dancers run no risk of undergoing muscular-skeletal dysfunction.
  • A complete workout of the brain, since:
    • Getting the step-combinations logic right exercises the left side of the brain.
    • Interpreting the music in coordination with the artistic body expression exercises the right side of the brain.
    • The analysis of spatial relationships exercises the upper back portion of the brain.
    • The memorizing of the steps exercises the lower backside of the brain.
  • Ballet is an excellent exercise for the direct, intuitive expression used in nonverbal communication while the part of the brain used for verbal and written communication receives a well-deserved timeout.
  • Improvement of coordination and balance.
