Classical Ballet originated in Renaissance Italy and established its present form during the 19th century. It is characterized by light, graceful movements and the dancer wears a tutu or soft ballet dress. Professional ballet dancers dance en pointe, in specially made ballet shoes with reinforced toes.
Dance has obvious physical benefits – it works all muscle groups and has a cardio element to classes. But there are many other benefits too! These include:-
• The development of social skills
• Self reliance
• To work as part of a group
• How to prioritise
• Increased confidence
