Team Talk Odette! #178 - Stretch Routine
September 15, 2014
Hello

In a typical routine for a professional dancer, each person will stretch differently according to their flexibility.

There'll always be a short amount of time during ballet class to stretch, usually at the barre before or after adage.

If you're a dancer who isn't naturally very flexible, you may want to stretch more especially after class when your muscles are warm and supple.

Stretching will also help you not feeling tight the next day, particularly if you've practiced a lot of pointe or demi-pointe work then a calve stretch is a must!

You can look at this page to discover how you can progress your flexibility -

Go on, have a stretch!

Best wishes,

Odette
