How ballet can improve performance

How does ballet improve athletic performance?


Enhanced agility, a decreased risk of groin injuries and better body awareness were all reported. Ballet helped players gain flexibility in their ankles and feet, which improved agility on the field. Ballet training also helped players increase the range of motion in their hips.


Why is ballet good for athletes?


It keeps you on your toes. This is a giant benefit for all athletes in need of increased agility. Ballet is all about keeping weight in your toes as you move quickly from side to side. Your reaction times get sharper and faster, which can help you stay on top of your opponents' decisions mid-play. 3. It teaches discipline.

What is Zombies the Musical About?


What? An entire school made up of students who are actually zombies, and others who

are just dying to get in there? Sound familiar? But these are not ordinary zombies.

These are zombies that long to be vegetarians, or at least have a diet that includes something more delectable than an everyday, ordinary diet of brains.

These are zombies that despise bullying in all its shapes and forms, and these are zombies

who above all, love to sing, dance and crack silly zombie jokes. These are MY kind of

zombies!

For those of you who may have reluctant boys and girls who don’t necessarily want be in

a production full of puppies and dancing flowers, we hope that playing a zombie might

get them excited about being on stage, making music together, sharing a message of

inclusion and being a part of something positive.
