Have you ever wanted to take a ballet class but didn’t know if you should or not? Have you tried taking a ballet class but never went through with it? Here are 5 reasons why you should take a ballet class from a current ballerina.
1. Heath benefits.
Taking a ballet class can help you multiple ways from losing weight and practicing good posture!
2. Lifelong friends.
I met my best friends in a ballet class. Believe it or not, the same girls I was dancing with when I was 6 are also going to be my bridesmaids. You have a special bond with your fellow dancers. You’ll be able to understand some of the things your dancer friends go through that your other friends won’t. Either way, if you stick to a regular dance class, I guarantee you’ll make at least one new friend.
3. Pure fun.
Many people who don’t take ballet think that it’s strict and no fun at all. Well, you’re wrong! Ballet is fun if you make it fun. You can throw your ipod on and improvise dance moves. You’ll have the time of your life choreographing your own dance. Every ballet move can be turned into something else if you want to. Ballet is art and it’s beautiful. You’ll be able to create your own piece of art!
4. Stress reliever.
I’ve been pissed off and stressed out plenty of times. How do I deal with it? I take a ballet class. It soothes me and calms me down. I put on my ballet shoes any time I want to clear my head or get something of my mind. It’s a great way to forget about reality once in awhile. You can get lost in music and dance your heart out.
5. Start your dance career.
For those of you looking to dance professionally, you need to take a ballet class. Most colleges and universities require you to take a ballet class. By the time you enter your first audition, you’ll need to be intermediate to advanced in ballet. Ballet is the class that will jump start a career in dance. It has the basic movements and the beginning dance moves you need to succeed.
Hopefully I’ve convinced a few of you to take a ballet class!
