**THESE (NUMBERS 32-33) REQUIRE A THERABAND OR RESISTABAND THANKS**

32.lay w/ your back on the floor and put one knee up and the other crossed over so it kinda looks like a box..a 90 degree angle. wrap the theraband around your foot on the leg on top and wing and sickle so you build your ankle muscles. Be sure to switch legs!

33.lay on your back put the theraband on your foot and straighten your leg up towards the ceiling..flex and roll through the pointe of your foot. Make sure you switch and also the theraband must be held TIGHT!

Feet exercises! [05 Aug 2004|04:15pm]
asmileforyou
**REMEMBER TO DO THESE REGULARLY! REPITIONS!**

1. releves and eleves in each position (first, second, fifth, then on one foot, parallel, turned in) make sure to switch feet! and do them as slow as possible. and go to your fullest releve

2. rolling your arch with a tennis ball. stand while doing this one, and make sure your holding onto something. do these slowly!! and switch feet. do these parallel and w/ foot turned out

3. stand on a chair holding on to something. put the ball of your foot on the edge so ur heel is off the chair and do slow releves and eleves from that poistion.switch feet!

4. sit down and sit up nice and tall. bend your knees have a piece of cloth in front of your toes then pick up the cloth while scrunching your toes and release it slowly with each toe. (like using your hands to pick up he cloth)

5. write the alphabet with each foot.. first name with one foot and last with the other. switch! dont let your foot off the ground.

6.sit up back straight and knees bent. with foot pointed slowly move your legs out in front of you keeping your foot on the floor. hold this and try to push it a little. then repeat

7.stand flat on the floor with the weight over toeballs and heels. Then try to "lift" the middlepart of the foot. Scrunch your toes back towards the heels by lifting the arch, while gripping the floor with your toes. Will strenghten your feet and lift the arch. Remember to stretch after.

8.sitting on the floor w/ your legs bent in front of you lift all of your toes off the ground and from pinky toe to big toe roll through one at a time. This one is hard.oh! be sure to not let your foot come off the ground! Its kinda like playing the piano w/ your toes!:)

9.heh..this one may be helpful to some...but try massaging your feet. Massage them at the ball, in between your toes(heehee), on your arch, and on your achilles. If you do this before dancing, it feels REALLY good!

10.point your foot (arch part) and flex your toes, hold, then-point your toes(you almost have to scrunch them up) and flex your foot, hold.
repeat 30 times on each foot. it really stretches your instep-i guess you could do it with a theraband as well.
you have to have quite good coordination for it though!

11. Ankle circles- 20 clockwise and anti-clockwise

12.Rises in parallel (add more pressure)

13.Pick up marbles off the floor with your feet

14.when doing a tondue (whever, front, side, back) focus on not only pointing your foot, but actually pushing against the floor right before pointing, so rather than go directly from being flexed to pointed, you work your foot through releve

15.work at pointing your toes when doing all sorts of jumps, mostly just by practicing then jumps and getting used to the feel of having your feet completely pointed.

**THE LINKS ALL FROM DANCE.NET! (NUMBERS 16-31) HAVE VERY IMPORTANT INFO ON THEM.I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU LOOK THROUGH THEM CAREFULLY THANKS!**

One of my friends was debating starting jazz at fourteen. She is a little egotistical and she often makes herself out to be an expert when she isn't. I asked her why she didn't want to take ballet. She said (direct quote here, people!!!) "It just looks like there is NO work put into it. I mean, it seems like it's just a bunch of flexible people jumping and twirling to classical music. BORING!!!" I'm thinking HOW DARE SHE!!!?!?!

See, like I said. People think ballet is easy. That is only because we work our butts off to make it look like it is second nature to us. The audiences never see the work we put in it, or how we must perfect everything to fully express ourselves. Dance is our LIFE and people ridicule it and misunderstand it every day.

We must SHOW people what it is to DANCE!!! Anyone can put on the shoes and go through the motions half-heartedly! WE PUT OUR SOULS INTO IT!!! That is what makes us a dancer!

I challenge you to GRANDE JETE in the PARKING LOT, wear those SASSY DANCER T-SHIRTS IN PUBLIC, walk through the grocery store on DEMI-POINTE, and PIROUETTE to your HEART'S CONTENT! NEVER BE ASHAMED OF WHAT YOU DO, AND WHAT YOU DO IS DANCE!!!

" The best stretch EVER!" [30 Jul 2004|06:03pm]
asmileforyou
This stretch works best with a partner. Lay on your back and lift one leg up to your head. Breathe calmly and deeply throughout the entire exercise. Try to get it as far as you can. For 20 counts, have your partner push it further to your head and totally relax your muscles. Yes it hurts but flexibility requires some pain. Resist against the pushing for 20 counts. Then relax your muscles again and let your partner push for 20 counts. For 20 counts, resist the pushing. Then, try to hold your leg as far back as it can go without using your hands for 20 counts or as long as possible. You should be relying on your leg muscles. Then bring your leg to the side of your body and hold it there for 20 counts or as long as possible. Bring your leg down VERY SLOWLY and repeat with the other leg. This was taught to me by 2 girls from Korea who took a summer session at my studio. After doing this once, I went from being 6 inches off the floor to being flat on my left splits. This works so well!
