*NEW Cool down in 5 minutes

A great post dance class cool down.. It can be nice after a vigorous class to walk around a little first to allow the heart rate to come back down before stretching. With me talking the cool-down is a little longer than 5 mins but each stretch is performed for just 30 seconds. No excuses to just run out of class (hehe) Enjoy x

*NEW Warming up for front clicks :)

Try adding this dynamic sequence into your warm up routine to prep those hamstrings and hips for work! Imagine how much your clicks and shoots etc would improve even just adding these into every pre dance class 🙂

Sunday session. Feb 28th. Reflective journaling & Full body stretch.

Firstly be proud that you show up for yourself, that you’re taking the time out to slow down and reflect. We start with our journals, looking at this last week and the week ahead before a juicy full body stretch, it’s time to restore your body and energy levels. This is the day to wind down, slow down and recenter yourself.

Movement prep: Ostrich stretch

Hips n Hamstrings – A Riverdance favourite back stage mobility move.. Pop a few of these in whilst waiting back stage to perform.

Movement prep: Downward dog sequence

Another great all rounder: The downward facing dog with heel raises will lengthen through the hamstrings, lower legs, mobilise the ankles. Feel free to add to it with the hovers as shown and the extra core activation. 3-5 repetitions will be great!
