It is absolutely imperative that dancers are strong, physically fit, and able to endure the rigors of dance performance. A conditioning regime allows dancers to opportunity to strengthen their bodies to compliment their technical and stylistic dance training and prevent injuries.
Conditioning typically includes:
Arm/ Back/Leg Work
Our Dance Strength & Conditioning Workshop complements the training of a dancer. In this workshop, dancers will increase their understanding of their anatomy, proper alignment, while increasing flexibility and strengthening both their upper and lower body. When leading dancers through conditioning exercises, it is important to reiterate the purpose of the exercise and explain the detail of the execution, placement, and alignment of the body.
