Some questions we hear at our dance studio quite often are: “why do I need to be in ballet class” or “does my young child need ballet?” or “do males benefit from ballet class?” All of these questions can be answered by explaining why exactly ballet is so important and what the benefits are for any dancer of any age.
Ballet is the foundation of almost all styles of dance. The basics of ballet you can take with you to any style of use for to become a stronger dancer. Ballet strengthens your muscles, corrects your posture, improves balance and flexibility, increases agility and strength, teaches coordination and musicality, and so much more. The discipline alone, that you get taught being in a ballet class is something that every child should learn. Ballet classes are very structured and often strict, dancers learn valuable life lessons by being a part of this atmosphere.
