Team Talk Odette! #143 - Secret Tips To Flexibility
January 20, 2014
Hello

Many ballet dancers ask me how to increase their flexibility and improve on ballet positions like side splits or arabesque.

Luckily I cover this topic through many pages on my website, as I have a lot of advice to give, so make sure you have a browse around on these pages -

However, my main tip for you now is to remember flexibility takes long term practice to see a difference. It takes time to achieve what you're aiming for and most importantly it takes strength.

Therefore, as you improve and get stronger in ballet your flexibility will gradually increase too.

You can look here to get more top tips on ballet stretches and how it's possible to improve your flexibility -

Remember to reflect on how far you have come in ballet, as well as what more you would like to achieve.

Best wishes,

Odette
