Healthy movement for Deeper dance
In this video I share my favourite conditioning exercises and warmup drills to help you deepen your movement quality, improve your mind-body connection, and hopefully even rediscover and restore lost ranges of motion.
It contains 4 different 'warmup styles' - plus a dancealong drill to music for each part with movements that fit that particular warmup section.
The aim of this class is to help you get the most out of each of your dance practice sessions.
