Ballet has a great number of physical, mental and social benefits for participants. However, quite often  people feel like if they haven't learned ballet as a child then they've somehow missed the boat.

Ballet engages the entire body from head to toe, with each exercise at the barre working different muscle groups. Studies consistently show that ballet training is as physically tough as a number of top level sports.

2. Happy Hormones

In a ballet class when you are focused on the placement of your body and co-ordination with the music in the moment, you are able to escape from the stresses of everyday life. Additionally, classical music has been shown to have positive, calming influences on the brain and aids focus and concentration.
