FREE Workplace Wellness and Team Building Presentations & Workshops

Healthy workplaces, organizations, and communities are made up of healthy people within a culture of wellness. We are available to help you with that at NO cost. 

Helping your employees and members get healthy takes more than a monthly challenge, weightloss competitions, or annual screenings. It requires an honest look inward to areas individuals struggle with in real life. To truly make a difference in the workplace, an employer/organization needs to create a culture of wellness. In fact, we believe wellness and wellbeing is vitally important to the long-term success of any company or organization. 

Our mission: Ballet Austin involves and strengthens the community through the creation and experience of dance and the encouragement of health and well-beingTwo of Ballet Austin's core values include 'Encouraging Lifelong Health and Well-being' and 'Enriching our Community".  We desire to connect with the Austin community to inspire and encourage people to develop healthy habits for life, and to promote positive and effective culture teams in the family, the workplace, and beyond.

Through participation in local healthy living and fitness events, Ballet Austin's annual Get Fit event, unique workouts designed for older adults and breast cancer survivors, and our free BeWell Talks, we hope to be a resource for individuals, organizations and businesses.

In addition to providing FREE talks, Vicki is also available for corporate or conference trainings, team building and professional development topics. if you are looking for a fun team building activity; something creative to do with your group or work colleagues, your group or organization can find out more and book a private group class here
