Dancers! Learn to warm up and stretch the right way!

"The primary purpose of the “warm up” is to literally warm up and wake up your body’s muscles to improve performance. By warming up we increase our body’s core temperature, which loosens muscles and lubricates joints. This prepares the body for more intense and strenuous movement. When we warm up our body’s we improve nerve conduction. This is important for dancers because nerve messages travel through the body faster at higher temperatures. You may be asking yourself “So what does this mean”? It means that the warmer we are, the quicker our nerve responses which results in quicker reflexes and muscular reactions. This in turn reduces the risk of injury. Irrespective of the dance form you passionately follow, for the most part, any dancer’s warmup consists of sitting on the floor and stretching their legs in various positions. "
