As dancers, it is important to look after our body and nourish it with the right care.

Ballet stretching is part of every professional dancer's life. It becomes a routine to stretch out all the muscles before and after ballet class.

But stretching can often be a complex matter, as some days our body can feel more flexible than others. Let me explain why and discover more about ballet stretching -

If you really push your body in ballet class and focus on using on all the muscles, you will need to release your body afterwards by lengthening and relaxing the muscles.

Take some time to put together your own stretch routine and your body feel a lot better.

Challenge yourself and keep working hard!

Best wishes,
