Dancer's List

No one knows or can appreciate how physically challenging dance is. No one sees the blisters, bruises, blood, or raw areas of a dancer's feet. And a dancer fights through the pain

Getting More Height in leaps:     Ankle weights –  for leaps, battements, turns and barre work.      Practice leaping with no prep, or only one step preceding the leap. No chasse, no chaine, no run-run. Just one step in plié and LEAP!      Think travel the leap rather than try to stop it mid air. You will not only go higher but your back leg will stay up longer and straighter, too!
