I know taking time away from choreography, cleaning and technique can be scary and adding strength training to your class seems overwhelming – especially if you’re not a self proclaimed fitness expert.
🗣️ But hear me now: it’s not too late to see the benefits of strength training and even the way they highlight and benefit technique.
Here are a few examples / signs you may need to incorporate strength training into your classes.
Example 1: Your dancers have beautiful turn out and have a full split on the floor but lack the power to hit a full split in the air. Plus the back leg lags behind.
Example 2: Your dancers have gorgeous extension but lack the strength to hold their leg above 90 degrees.
Example 3: Your dancers have an impressive arch but lack the strength to stay in relevé. They may also hop in their turns.
Example 4: Your dancers fix one correction in their turns or leaps but then something else falls apart and they lack the ability to connect their mind to their muscles and their muscles to their movements.
If these sound familiar to you, I’d love to help you get clear on your path so that you you can improve your dancer’s skills, strength, injury prevention, endurance and scores.
