FOR PERFORMANCE EXCELLENCE
FULFILLING STUDENT POTENTIAL
Psychological Skills in ballet classes facilitate the discovery of individual best practices, movement patterns, and artistry. They teach problem-solving and critical thinking that can enhance self-reliance and resilience.
When practising ballet in a physically and emotionally safe environment, dancers can develop psychological skills during their regular training, improve healthy coping mechanisms, and increase resilience.
"Ballet training can either enhance and develop confidence and self-esteem, or undermine and damage it, depending on the experiences and behaviours teachers provide in the classroom"
