Online ballet exercises for Beyond 50s and Beginners with Susan & Elizabeth

It was two years ago when Elizabeth started to feel the years weighing on her body. She was finding it increasingly difficult to stay mobile, her stability and balance were deteriorating and her foot was so painful, on some days she could not stand on it. Instead of sitting back, she turned to her daughter, Susan (a passionate amateur dancer who has trained in various dance forms and Pilates exercise her whole life) who thought that gentle dance-based exercise could help.

And so Susan began guiding her mum through simple ballet-based exercises to help with her strength and mobility.

Elizabeth quickly reaped the benefits. Her balance and stability improved daily, her foot began to strengthen and heal, and her mobility increased. Her body began toning, her arms and legs tighten. Her brain kicked up a gear. Her fitness improved. And it was all so much fun!

Elizabeth and Susan began sharing videos of their exercises with friends who also loved and benefited from them.

And so Ballet Based Movement was born by us, two amateurs passionate about dance, and benefiting physically, emotionally and mentally.

So whoever you are, whatever your fitness level, we don’t care! Come and  join us. Have some fun, get stronger and more mobile, and fall in love with dance with us!
