Classical dance for adults
Fouetté, developpé, relevé! For some of us, those who have dreamed of a future at the Bolshoi, these words are music, for others, those that have been dragged by their mothers, are a real nightmare, yet they are coming back into fashion and with them the whole world of ballet. Yes, because classical dance is becoming the new trend even for ladies over 40, even more so for them. The reason? Clothing is glamorous, gait is elegant and ballet tones and relaxes like few other sports. Not only that, ballet is a passion that can be lived outside the narrow world of the dance studio. If classical dance seems too quiet, try your hand at something more lively, such as zumba or pole dance, or to discover another culture, try oriental dance. You could also start by asking yourself what flamenco is or what swing is, to get to discover this fantastic dance. In fact the dance includes different dances to tone the body. Benefits Improve memory - In each dance class you learn new steps, even simple bar sequences that help stimulate our memory. It is a very valuable exercise for the mind that will gradually find it easier to memorize even longer sequences. Decreases stress - The music that drives the lesson, the stretching before and after the exercises are all elements that help the body to get rid of the accumulated stress. This is why more and more companies, especially abroad, offer employees the opportunity to attend dance classes. Corrects posture - Office workers know well when our back looks more like an S at the end of the day than a healthy back. The dance, done with due care, helps us relax it, keep it straight and create space between one vertebra and the other avoiding easy crushing. It makes your muscles flexible - Studying classical dance allows you to regain a good muscular flexibility and allows you to slowly regain agility and avoid unpleasant contractions.
