Strength and Alignment: Prepare the Body


Nowadays, gymnastics is demanding a high level of physical preparation in the areas of both technique and artistry.  The advantage of adding regular Dance-based physical preparation activities to training sessions is the development of athletes who are strong, fluid AND injury-resistant!  

Dance-based Strength and Alignment activities provide a VERY solid base upon which Artistry and Dance techniques are built, and often only body weight and the floor is used to provide resistance and biofeedback. 

These activities can also be added into programs that include basic gymnastics-specific profile shapes and will lengthen and strengthen the muscles of participants, whilst improving the awareness and the alignment of their bodies.

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the exercises…they are VERY VERY effective! 🙂
