Do you want to jump higher, land softly and prevent injury at the same time?
The soleus muscle is often the culprit for a lot of foot and ankle injuries. Unfortunately it is not very well trained with a regular ballet barre so you need to do some additional strengthening to make sure that it is conditioned enough to cope with petite allegro.
Are niggling foot and ankle injuries holding you back from dancing your best?
The problem is that when we are jumping we are landing on fondu and a lot of the time in class we are just practicing our rises with our knees straight.
