Stretch and Limbering

Stretch and limbering classes are intended to help with general flexibility

and strength. Knowledgeable stretching is known to prevent injuries or pain

and improve dance performance.


Our classes start with a cardio warm up and then combine various exercises

taught to increase suppleness, stamina and build core strength and control

required for all disciplines of dance.


Techniques include partner assisted stretching, use of ballet barres, stretch bands, yoga

blocks, stretch bars, foot stretchers and weights. First Stage have fully qualified Acrobatics

Arts Teachers and the stretch and strengthening elements of this syllabus are also taught

in our stretch classes.

Please check timetables for latest class times. We have 4 stretch classes during the week at

our studios, Mini, Junior, Inter and Senior. Our Inter and Senior classes are also combined with

Body Conditioning.
