Queensland Ballet’s Community Engagement team is once again proud to host the popular Mind, Body, Ballet event on Saturday 7 August. Now in its fifth year, this flagship health and well-being experience has been expanded in 2021 to a broader group of dancers, including an already sold-out Seniors group, and Ballet Boys group.
Mind, Body, Ballet inspires dancers ages 10 and up, as well as parents/guardians, and dance studio professionals. All skill levels are invited to attend and learn through a variety of activities including interactive workshops, ballet and Pilates classes, and information sessions with Queensland Ballet’s Performance Health, Academy and Artistic teams, as well as industry affiliates. Content for each group is tailored to ensure a more personalised experience during the day.
Guest keynotes and teachers will include: Zara Gomes, head of performance health at Queensland Ballet; Louise Drysdale, physiotherapist at Queensland Ballet; Lisa Edwards, teacher at Queensland Ballet Academy and Pilates teacher; Tonia Looker, Queensland Ballet teaching artist and former company artist; Tony Lewis, Queensland Ballet strength and conditioning coach; Dr Nancy A. Pachana, clinical geropsychologist, neuropsychologist and professor in the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland; Alanah Giles, nutritionist and dietitian; Georgia Canning, founder of Balanced Ballerinas; Tama Barry, provisional psychologist; Miriam Van Doorn, yoga and meditation for seniors teacher; and Eloise Golledge, podiatrist.
