Body Conditioning- All you Need to Know

Body Conditioning- All you Need to Know

"Dancers can avoid injury by having sufficient strength and flexibility. Correct mechanics are important to save from injury while doing upper body-work. Conditioning is all about learning how the body acts and reacts to energy and force. Adolescent dancers are especially at risk as they do not necessarily focus on conditioning.They often lack core strength required to maintain good alignment. Paradoxically , the age is also the time when young dancers go through major physical changes. During growth spurts, muscles and bones don’t grow at the same rate, and it may lead to joint instability, functional strength loss and decreased proprioceptive awareness (knowledge of limb placement)- thereby exposing yound dancers are at a high risk for back injuries. Conditioning is the best way to manage the physical and psychological demands of your chosen dance form, and enrich your performance abilities. By unleashing your hidden strength, you can unleash your full physical and artistic potential. "

7 Compelling Reasons Why You Need Dancer's Fitness

"Today’s dancers are unfit and, more importantly, not as healthy as they could be. They are not prepared for the high level of demands made by choreographers, and juggling between school or work and their dance sessions, fitness often gets ignored or sidelined. The training methods used for various dance movements are not enough to help dancers prepare for the more physically demanding aspects of performance. What is a dancer's fitness, and why it is essential? For any dancer, the physical, as well as psychological well-being is the base of their artistic expression. To dance well, a dancer needs to focus on all aspects of fitness. Good fitness ensures that dancers are less prone to injuries, can enhance their performance, and push their physical abilities. All this helps in prolonging their career and ensures dancers live a happier, fuller life. "
