This one-hour clinic focuses on safe and smart stretching to build flexibility – and the strength needed to demonstrate flexibility and extension in choreography.  We will discuss the muscle groups that impact various extensions and dance skills, and teach specific stretches to target each muscle group. Dancers will learn about fundamentals for a safe stretching practice, and go home with a stretching routine they can continue to practice at home to continue building their flexibility even on days they don’t have a dance class!
