Stretch & Conditioning

Strength training is important for a dancer’s overall ability and stamina.  Strengthening the body’s opposing muscles is vital to avoid injury.  Flexibility work is important so that the dancer’s movement seems effortless and light. The combination of these two objectives in one class helps to create long flexible muscles often seen in Vaganova-trained dancers (rather than short tight ones) consistent with the goal of keeping a ballet dancer’s lines long, beautiful, and strong.
