To celebrate Seniors Week, Queensland Ballet will return to council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre to present its seniors ballet workshops, Ballet for Seniors and Ballet Repertoire, on Monday, August 20.
Sponsored by IRT Group, the classes are designed to stimulate the bodies and minds of active older people.
With workshops offering a spectrum of pace, progression and participation levels, there will be a class to suit everyone, regardless of previous experience.
Ballet for Seniors is a gentle class tailored for active older adults with a focus on improving poise, core strength, memory and mobility.
Research has shown that this class can lead to increased energy, fitness, bodily awareness and control, improved posture and flexibility.
Ballet Repertoire is a follow-up class to Ballet for Seniors, and brings the Company’s 2018 season choreography directly from the stage to the Sunshine Coast.
The seniors ballet workshops aren't just for IRT residents. All Sunshine Coast seniors can join the ranks of adults worldwide who are discovering what Queensland Ballet has known forever – that dance is a great way to increase fitness, improve stamina and have a whole lot of fun.
To book, please call Lake Kawana Community Centre on 5413 1400 or visit www.scvenuesandevents.com.au. Tickets are $6 per workshop or two workshops for $10.
