Today Ballet Espressivo was featured in a wonderful article by Sheelagh Daly on the website SheKnows Canada in an article entitled “4 Great leg workouts for the new year.” Here is what she had to say about ballet and about us:


As the founder and owner of Ballet Espressivo — an adult ballet and dance school — Donna Greenberg works regularly with dancers of all ages and experience levels. She explains that not only does ballet work the legs, but it also prevents injuries, develops core strength, engages the body and the mind at the same time, increases concentration and improves alignment, balance, posture, flexibility, coordination and circulation. And if all that isn’t enough, it also “tones and elongates every part of the body,” she adds. Think it’s too late for you to jump into a ballet class? Not so! Greenberg affirms that most of her students are non-professionals and range in age from 18 to over 60. Most important, she points out that ballet isn’t only an opportunity to strengthen your legs as well as the rest of your body; it’s about more than that. “You learn to appreciate the process and the enjoyment of being healthy and strong and building your body and quieting your mind from things that shouldn’t matter,” explains Greenberg. Now that is a beautiful notion we can’t wait to experience more of!
