• Stretch and Strengthen

  • Stretch and Strengthen ("S & S")

    Stretch and Strengthen classes are highly recommended for ALL Students! Proper stretching and limbering of all the joints and muscles is taught according to age and class level capabilities.  This helps in the development of high extensions and ease of movement quality as well as injury prevention. 

  • Strengthening exercises of all muscle groups (especially core muscles) are equally concentrated upon to help the dancer attain aplomb in all dance movement.  Isometric exercises which build strength in different muscle groups, Pilates based exercises, and Hatha Yoga postures and stretches are also part of the routine of the class.  Stretch bands may be purchased at the Front Desk.  2-lb. weights are needed for more advanced Levels.  Instructor will advise.
