Dancers all over the world are constantly asking questions such as…
- “How can I get more flexible?”
- “How do I get into the splits?”
- “What are the best ways to stretch?”
There are so many myths in the dance world (as well as in Martial Arts, Gymnastics and any other sport that desires flexibility) about how to get more flexible, however many of these can actually be very dangerous.
Pushing into stretches, over stretching, PNF Stretching, Ballistic stretching and Partner Stretching all carry risks of tearing muscles and damaging ligaments. We now know that traditional stretching methods are the slowest and most inefficient way of getting more flexible.
To help you understand this in more detail I have teamed up with MDM Dancewear to create a video about the intricacies of getting more flexible.
