  • Ballet for Recuperation

    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. All of our work together is simple and gentle, promoting a supportive,
    encouraging and positive atmosphere.
