Ballet is arguably the most graceful form of dance, filled with poise and elegance. It has long been known as the foundation for all dances, as it teaches the balance and posture that all dancers, no matter their chosen style, need to master. The dance is not just beautiful, but it also has so many benefits for the body and mind. As well as boosting mental well-being by alleviating stress, it also improves flexibility, muscle strength and tone and posture, which can put an end to back and neck pain. For younger dancers, it helps them to learn expression, grow their confidence, and how to connect movement to music.
