FREE TRIAL - STRETCH AND CONDITIONING
A must for all senior students thinking of auditoning for vocational dance schools.
Saturdays 2-2.45pm with Miss Purr
Suitable for students age 12 and up.
Stretch and conditioning should be part of a dancers everyday training regime. This class will begin with 15 minutes HiIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to build cardio fitness, followed by 15 minutes ballet based pilates exercises focusing on correct pelvic alignment, core stability working on strengthening abdominals, back and oblique (side) muscle groups. Over the course of a term we 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 15 minutes 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.
