Course Summary

This course is suitable for students who have completed at least 6 months of beginner’s ballet, or who are ready for a new challenge and improving technical accuracy.

Join us on Wednesdays with dance teaching professional Janelle House. She promises that the class will be the best 60 minutes of your day. Each class begins at the barre and then progresses into the centre in our beautiful purpose built studio. Every week we will build on a dance from the Classical Ballet Repertoire. Next term’s focus: repertoire from the ballet Coppelia.

Beginners and Continuing classes available on Wednesdays. Over 55s most welcome as Janelle is a licensee of The Silver Swans program, which specialises in Dance classes for our distinguished citizens.

Beginners: 10:00am to 11:00am

Continuing: 11.15am to 12:15pm

“It is not the things we get, but the hearts and minds we touch that will measure our success in life.” This is the greatest joy and privilege of teaching. Janelle House.

Dance and well-being go hand-in-hand. Research shows that continued participation in dance programs can improve health outcomes for people of any age. For many, dance is more enjoyable than other forms of exercise. We dance as a group, with a leader for verbal instructions and visual cues. Dance as a low-impact structured and improvised movement with music is a highly effective way to exercise. It helps with stability, coordination and mobility. Health literature tells us that dance programs motivate people to stay engaged in regular activity.

Dancing offers each participant improved longevity, balance, core strength and coordination, with a reduction in falls and a lower risk of dementia. Dance increases social connectedness, mental health and well-being, while improving physical condition and cognitive acuity.
