Resumo: Purpose: Evaluate the effects of a movement class in the flexibility, muscle strength, balance, fear of fall, quality of life and functional performance, in institutionalized elderly. Subjects: 30 subjects were randomly assigned in one convenience sample. Methods: The study was accomplished between t0 and t1, before and after the movement class. The results of the study were measured by the Medical Outcomes Studies 12-item Short-Form (MOS SF-12), Physical Performance Test (PPT-9), Berg Balance Scale, Dynamometer, Modified Back-scratch Test, Chair Sit-and-reach Test, Timed Up n Go test and Falls Efficacy Scale International - FES-I. Results: There were obtained significant data (p ≤0,05) for the variables in study, with the experimental protocol (between t0 and t1), with an increase of the variables. Conclusion: The implementation of a experimental protocol during 4 weeks, showed significant improvements at the level of the state of life, physical acting, muscle strength, flexibility of the superior and inferior members, balance mobility and fear of fall.
