Ballet classes at 2ballerinas studio attracts people from all walks of life.

Truck drivers, doctors, pilots, lawyers, professors and mums and daughters attend ballet sessions at the Bardon studio.

Michelle Giammichele said people from the ages of 20 to 70 came together in class to share their passion for ballet - either newly discovered or long-lost.

"We have two mothers and daughters, Wendy and Kerry Price and Sandra and Anna Hall," Mrs Giammichele said.

"Kerry used to take her daughter Wendy to class for years and years. Wendy, now a doctor, talked her mum into coming along.

"Kerry, who comes to the beginner class, raves about it because ballet has really improved her golf stroke." She said Sandra, a school teacher, reached a very high standard with her ballet exams and her daughter, Anna, had followed in her mum’s footsteps.

"Anna tries to keep up with her mum when they dance together in the advanced class," she said.

Rosetta Cook and Mrs Giammichele were prima ballerinas with The Queensland Ballet for several decades — Ms Cook from 1980-1992, and Mrs Giammichele from 1981-1986 and then again from 1989-2000.

Mrs Giammichele said the pair joined forces to create 2ballerinas to give adults the chance to do ballet either as a beginner or at an advanced level.
