Stretch / Conditioning, Acro, Leaps & Turns
Stretching and body conditioning with an emphasis on a dancer's body and what dancer's need to perform and to prevent injury. Stretching releases muscular tension, increases the temperature of the muscles to make them more fluid and flexible, releases toxins from the muscles, gives greater elasticity to the muscles and joints, and improves strength by increasing the mechanical advantage you can generate with the limbs. Stretching can prevent injury and assist in the rehabilitation after an injury. Stretching may also just feel good and be an intuitive method to increase focus and concentration for dance. It can teach you a lot about joint and muscle function. All elements of condition, alignment, balance, flexibility, strengthening, and cardio respiratory endurance are interrelated.
