It doesn't just have to be a ballet to improve balance and lessen dizziness it can be any dance style. The reason dancers like ballerinas don't get dizzy when performing is because an are in the cerebral cortex part of your brain that is responsible for dizziness adapts over time and every time a ballerina practices. There are signals being sent into the brain altering the dizziness part of the brain to lessen it because those signals are telling the brain that this person doesn't need to be dizzy when spinning.
             There are also medical advantages in the brain area that are connected with dancing. "The study, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine, shows that dance is the best exercise to improve a person's cognitive skills – whatever age he might be" (Dancing helps the Brain Function Better, examined existence).
