Balletforever posted a topic in Doing DanceHi... I’m looking for some strengthening tips to help me get my leg higher in extensions. I have good turnout (full flat turnout) and am flexible (all 3 splits etc) but really struggle maintaining height of leg during adage..grande battlement there’s no problem! I suffered a back injury and as a result had to keep extensions low and no more than 45 degrees for a long period of time..which is why I suspect I can no longer lift my leg higher..something I never struggled with pre-injury..My dance physio now allows me to lift my leg 90 degrees and above but I don’t have the strength to hold it at all!! Any tips on exercises I could do to strengthen would be greatly appreciated😊
Myself and a colleague are running 3 days of 'back to school' dance training in CENTRAL Birmingham at a bargain price of £100 for 3 days! (Considering how much I normally charge these days this is a total steal!!!!!!!!!!) Seriously though - I will be teaching all day, every day on this course and will focus on placing and technique, strength, safe flexibility, injury prevention as well as teaching all of the tips I have learnt from people like Rebecca Davies, Tahlysia Smedley and Rosina Andrews to get you turning more easily, jumping higher and doing all those fun leaps and tricks SAFELY! (Includes classes in Progressing Ballet Technique) It is open to ANY dancer from age 8 upwards - and I can also accommodate private coaching time for anyone who is looking for help with something specific, or wants to learn some exercises to help with their dancing or prevent injury. To apply just complete a registration form on www.midas-dance.org.uk - no payment will be needed until the first day of the course. **** VENUE: Sir Doug Ellis Woodcock Sports Centre, Aston University B4 7ET - Walking distance from the stations*******
