As a dancer having stamina and strength is a must. As you go up the grades the work starts to become more demanding so to help alongside their graded classes the students are encouraged to join our body conditioning class.
In this 45 minute class we start with a intensive cardio warm including running, jumps, burpees and HIIT training. We then move onto strengthening different muscles in our body from upper body strength to abdominals to working on our glute and turnout strength to name a few.
Throughout the term the students notice certain exercises getting easier as they build more strength within them. On week one a 1 minute plank for some students is a task but by the end of term their bodies have adjusted and they can now strive to achieve new goals.
Core strength is one of the most important elements for a dancer. You need this for good posture and to be able to balance on one leg whilst turning.
There is no specific uniform for this class but we advise trainers to be worn and for clothes to be tight fitting. Check the timetable for our latest classes.
