Strength Conditioning for Dancers.
"Strength", put simply, is your body's ability to produce and exert force. Being able to produce power, muscle endurance, and speed to dance efficiently will all have some aspect of strength in them. Research consistently shows that dance-only training (particularly in ballet/contemporary forms of dance) does not provide enough stimuli to enhance or increase fitness levels. Poor aerobic fitness and fatigue are related to dance-related injuries. The faster our bodies get tired, the more difficult it becomes to control our limbs and perform complex movements.
Dancers need to possess different types of strength in order to perform slow and controlled movements (adagios, or sustained choreography), but also produce movements with increased force exertion (jumps, kicks).

Strength (and increases in strength) will depend on several things such as:
- the ability for your muscle fibers to contract.
- the connections between your muscle and nerves/nervous system.
- the ability of your nervous system (aka your brain) to control your muscles.

Additionally, nutrition, adequate rest, and mental health and wellness also play significant roles in performance enhancement.

Note: None of these options are "must-have big muscles".
