Brief Summary:
Is a parallel longitudinal protocol where half patients receive a experimental protocol and the other half receive orientation to maintain your daily live routine as usually. The experimental protocol include Ballet sessions. The hypothesis is interventional group will improve the balance control more than control group.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 50 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Two groups design where one group receives treatment and the other not in the same period of time.
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Effect of Classic Ballet Practice on School Children's Postural Balance: Randomized Clinical Trial
Actual Study Start Date : July 15, 2018
Actual Primary Completion Date : October 30, 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 30, 2022

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ballet
Subjects who will receive the experimental protocol.
Other: Ballet
The classic ballet classes will respect biological limits of children. The sessions will be 75 minutes long, twice a week during 8 weeks. The class sequence will be: warm-up, follow by exercises about upper and lower limbs ballet positions and sequences of ballet jumps, and at the end a cool-down.

No Intervention: Control
Subjects who will not receive the experimental protocol, only will be on a wait list.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in total score of Star Excursion Balance Test at 8 weeks. [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after intervention protocol ]
    Changing between the beginning and end of intervention. This measure is shown in cm.

  2. Change from baseline in anteriorposterior and mediolateral displacements of Pressure Center at 8 weeks. [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after intervention protocol ]
    Changing between the beginning and end of intervention of anteroposterior and mediolateral displacements of pressure center in cm.

  3. Change from baseline in average speed of Pressure Center at 8 weeks. [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after intervention protocol ]
    Changing between the beginning and end of average speed of pressure center in cm/s.

  4. Change from baseline in 95% ellipse area of Pressure Center at 8 weeks. [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after intervention protocol ]
    Changing between the beginning and end of 95% ellipse area of pressure center in cm².

  5. Maintenance at 30 and 60 days from baseline in total score of Star Excursion Balance Test. [ Time Frame: Immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol. ]
    Changing between the end and 30 and 60 days after intervention. This measure is shown in cm.

  6. Maintenance at 30 and 60 days from baseline in anteroposterior and mediolateral displacements of pressure center [ Time Frame: Immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol. ]
    Changing between the end and 30 and 60 days after intervention of anteroposterior and mediolateral displacements of pressure center in cm.

  7. Maintenance at 30 and 60 days from baseline in average speed of pressure center [ Time Frame: Immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol. ]
    Changing between the end and 30 and 60 days after intervention of average speed of pressure center in cm/s.

  8. Maintenance at 30 and 60 days from baseline in 95% ellipse area of pressure center [ Time Frame: Immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol. ]
    Changing between the end and 30 and 60 days after intervention of 95% ellipse area of pressure center in cm².


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Vertical stiffness [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol ]
    Stiffness estimate by force plate data and displament of center of mass

  2. Peak and absortion rate of ground reaction force [ Time Frame: Before, immediate after, 30 and 60 days after intervention protocol ]
    Greatest value and absortion rate (between inicial contat and peak) of ground reaction force


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Physical activity level [ Time Frame: Before intervention ]
    Assessed by final score of Physical Activity Questionnaire for Children. The score questions are about daily physical activity of children. Final score is a mean calculate by 9 items/questions with range 1 to 5. A final score of 1 (minimum) indicates low physical activity, whereas a score of 5 (maximum) indicates high physical activity.
