The Hirschl School of
Dance Arts offers real "adult" ballet classes. These classes are comprised mainly of adult students that have
danced in the past, then taken 10, 20 or more years off. We also have special classes for complete beginning
adults that have never had the happy experience or opportunity of taking classical ballet before.
These are true traditional ballet lessons, not just "exercise classes with ballet flavoring".
Barre & center work, steps across the floor, and correct French terms are used. Students set their own pace. These classes
are aerobic & anaerobic, providing work on strength, flexibility, cardio-vascular & neuro-muscular endurance, coordination
Adults take ballet for a variety
of reasons: For the exercise of
mind & body, the art, stress reduction, or just to escape and do something for themselves. There are side benefits of taking ballet! Dancing would include an enhanced
ability to think more clearly. Taking ballet has been proven to help the mind think more clearly- something that could be
an asset in a college classroom or office at work.
Students have noted increases in their abilities with academics when taking ballet. Scientific studies have also been done linking dancing with a decrease in Alzheimer's disease and an effective increase in improved sleep patterns.
