Why You Should Join an Adult Ballet Class

By Genevieve Cunningham

When most people think about a beginner’s ballet class, they think about little kids. They think about cute little tutus and pink leotards and tiny ballet shoes. And this train of thought is completely normal. But as it turns out, ballet isn't only for small children. In fact, there may be some big benefits to picking up ballet as an adult. If you think that dancing for health sounds appealing, take a look at these reasons why you should consider signing up for ballet today.

It Helps Build Strength

Ballet requires serious bodily strength. You may not even realize just how strong you have to be until you're in the middle of it. Holding your arms in place, maintaining proper posture, and constantly engaging the leg muscles is hard work. It's really hard, and you’ll need strong muscles to make it happen. And if you don't already have muscle strength, you’ll definitely gain some strength quickly. If you like the idea of slowly building strength in the arms, legs, and core, ballet may be for you.

It Helps With Grace

Most people don't consciously think about being graceful, but they like the appearance of a graceful body. Ballet requires you to be strong, but also delicate in the same move. Though this takes plenty of practice, regular classes often lead to an improvement in balance and body control. This grace shows up in class, but it also spills over into other areas of life including work, exercise, and everyday movement.

It Challenges You Mentally

Ballet is challenging, and for an adult beginner, it can be incredibly frustrating. This forces you to develop a bit of mental toughness. You'll have to work through the frustration, learn patience and self-control, and develop a thick mental skin. If you want a workout that strengthens the muscles and the mind, too, ballet is a great choice.

It might seem like an odd choice, but adult ballet is growing in popularity. If you're brave and interested in a challenge, find a class and give it a try. You may find that it brings a fresh perspective and a fresh challenge to your fitness routine, and gets you closer to your health goals in no time at all.
