Flexibility & Conditioning

Flexibility

Our instructors begin class by properly warming up the body and leading students through a variety of exceecises to increase pliability in the muscles and mobility in the joints. We use the proven progressions of the Alixa flexibility method- focusing on square hips and proper alignment. Safety and injury prevention are our top priority. We do NOT believe in forced flexibility. 

Conditioning

Full body conditioning is essential to facilitate proper technique & skill progressions and to prevent injuries. Our instructors include muscular strength, muscular endurance, and cardiovascular endurance into all classes. Both small and large muscles are targeted, paying special attention to the hips, ankles and shoulders which are commonly injured in dancers.
