BALLET ZEN: Adult Ballet, Core Strengthening, & Relaxation Exercises – Beg/Int, for ages 21+
With Melissa Elstein
Taught by Melissa Elstein, this fusion class is open to adults 21 and over. All ages will benefit, including seniors, from learning gentle core strengthening exercises at the beginning of class, followed by ballet barre and basic center work, and a guided deep relaxation and short meditation to close. There will be an emphasis on leg and core strengthening, weight shifting, and balance work while learning adult ballet technique. These skills are useful for fall prevention – so important as we age – and combined here with beautiful music, the gracefulness of ballet movement, mental focus and relaxation, students will have a holistic movement class experience.
Canvas ballet slippers, jazz shoes, or socks with traction required. Must bring your own yoga mat.
