Dance-based Stretch & Conditioning
This class is suitable for students of age 12 and up who need to improve their core stability.
This class will begin with half an hour of ballet based pilates exercises focusing on correct pelvic alignment, core stability working on strengthening abdominals, back and oblique (side) muscle groups. It will then focus on hamstring, adductor and abductor muscles, lower leg and foot strength and alignment, upper body conditioning and strength work, finishing with whole body alignment and correct postural awareness. In the final half hour, the class will take the form of a long and intense ballet based stretch, stretching out overused and tired leg muscles such as hamstrings, quadriceps, iliotibia bands and calf muscles, increasing flexibility in the spine and hip region, looking at safe stretching practises and limits, and developing a daily stretch routine that the students can take home. This class is perfect for any student with weakness in a particular region, recovering from injury, or wishing to improve flexibility.
There is no set uniform for this class. Dancers can wear any leotard and tights combination. Bare feet. Please bring a yoga mat or towel. Hair in a low ponytail.
