Stretch & Core

 

Two important and invaluable assets that dancers should possess are flexibility and strength. These are two qualities that go hand in hand with one another and are essential in every dancers training.


These classes focus on strengthening the core of each student as well as other muscles which are needed when dancing. Strength is the key to being a successful dancer as much is needed in each and every movement performed. Apart from strength, one also needs flexibility. Having the flexibility enables the dancer to look more graceful when performing. The dancer would be able to form more lines and create more beautiful images with their body. As dancing is an art, it is important that it is beautiful to look at, with both strength and flexibility combined together, this is possible.

Stretch and core classes enhance the dancers’ capabilities as well as giving them a good workout, and enabling students to develop the structural quality required in the formation of the complete dancer. Through the use of specific exercises, students develop the right physical structure that enables them to obtain their strength, proper flexibility and other technical abilities essential to reach the standards expected of todays dancers.


Classes are offered at the Brigitte Gauci Borda School of Dance once a week for 1 hour.
