Last class in this mini series. Let us know how you get on and if you’ve any questions x
More great progressions for those hips and insights from Coach Fran x
Continuing on from last class, grab your mini bands. This is a short class. I’m yet to meet a dancer that doesn’t need more hip strength and power so let’s do it!
Class one of a hip power series with Fran.. As irish dancers we need super strong hips to execute ALL of our movements, from pulling up off of our heels to front clicks, to speed and sharpness across the stage. By improving the strength in our hips we also help to prevent injuries in the lower body!
Grab your journals… These reflections are super important.. Please do the activities!
We also know that if there is any tension anywhere in the hips then it will affect your dancing, so today we move through our hips for range of motion and check in with each area as we go.
This week ask the question… “What would love do.” – Refer to the video 🙂
Preparing for clicks, shoots and clicks – best done towards the end of your activation and mobilising.
Balance – great for the ankles and preparing those hips for cuts
I love this move for balance, ankle stability, activating those hamstrings and hips.
Hips n Hamstrings – A Riverdance favourite back stage mobility move.. Pop a few of these in whilst waiting back stage to perform.
