    Positive Feedback!
    “The first series of free classes was a success! Everyone had a positive and peaceful experience while benefiting from strengthening techniques, stretches, and ballet basics. There were different ages and levels of strength, and everyone worked to their limit and felt comfortable. Every strengthening technique is easy to learn. After three weeks of the class, most people said they already felt stronger in their legs and ankles I really enjoyed organizing these classes and being a part of this opportunity. I cant wait to do it again and see new people join.” – Grace Hanford

    Testimonial
    “The restorative ballet class was helpful in so many ways. Not only is my neuropathy pain lessening, I also feel my body is stronger and more lengthened. There is a mindfulness component to these classes that is very helpful, a sense of just being. I look forward to participating in the second six!” ~Anonymous

    Class Overview
    There are many breast cancer survivors who struggle with the chronic pain of neuropathy. One way to lessen this discomfort is through ballet. Ballet is not only a beautiful form of expression, it is also a therapeutic, restorative form of movement that can assist the body in beginning to heal itself. Ballet stretches and poses move the muscles and bones in the foot in a way that alternative approaches simply do not. Second, unlike medications and acupuncture that are ineffective as soon as you stop, ballet allows you to continue healing on your own.
    During our hour together, you will learn simple exercises at the bar or in the center of the studio that will focus on stretching your legs and feet to begin to lessen your pain. Also, you may learn how to strengthen your sense of control over an often frustrating situation. You will learn stretches that you can easily do at home, in just a few minutes a day, to continue the healing process. All of our work together is simple and gentle, promoting a supportive, encouraging and positive atmosphere.
