Balance need improving?   Need to get in shape?  Think you have two left feet?   Improve your balance, grace, and blood pressure by reading about this opportunity:


Grand Rapids Ballet (GRB) has introduced an Adult Ballet Class for active individuals and dance admirers looking to exercise. Come in and learn about all the ways ballet can help you stay fit. This class is open to all ranges, abilities and experience levels. The program focuses on: Ballet Technique, Stretching, and Conditioning. Don’t hesitate to bring a friend, the first class is FREE!



This class focuses not only on ballet technique, but also on core strengthening and muscle conditioning. Studies have proven that ballet dancers train and perform on a level equal to professional football players. In ballet, all of your muscles are actively engaged in movement, providing you with greater flexibility, and exercising the brain. Beyond that, you build self-confidence, grow artistically, and relieve stress.


“Ballet is more than just moving and turning” said Artistic Director Patricia Barker. “Ballet provides the poise and presence needed to command both on and off the stage by instilling a sense of accomplishment that improves your outlook on life.”



Classes are held at the Meijer-Royce Center for Dance, home of the Grand Rapids Ballet, located at 341 Ellsworth SW. Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30pm-7:45pm.
