Mobility month bonus class. HIPS!

Possibly one of my favourite passive & active sequences for those hips I’ve done for you 😉 I hope you enjoy it – I think it’ll be one you’ll keep coming back to. Literally working all areas and actions of the hips.

Mobility challenge. Week 2. Activation – Hamstrings.

Let’s activate those hamstrings in a simple way. As dancers, we spend a lot of time stretching the hamstrings, but learning to activate and strengthen them is super important in injury prevention and overall body awareness.

Irish dance skills work – Slides & reaches.

Delighted to be covering this Irish dance skill.. We can often see on dancers that leg extending out to glide can turn in from time to time.. Learn how to mobilise and strengthen the muscles involved to prevent this happening and improve this skill overall x

Movement prep. Adductor switches.

This stretch opens up those inner thighs (the cross over muscles) whilst also helping out our external rotators (turnout muscles) ohhhh and ankle mobility – So a great all rounder!

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
