Part 1: Assessment: In order to effectively work on any individual’s flexibility, we must acknowledge each of the structures that may restrict mobility and to what proportion they are contributing to any individual’s stiffness in any one area. Carefully assessing range of motion in different directions, with awareness of what sensation is experienced and what this means, allows for the most optimal mobilisation techniques to be chosen for that individuals flexibility program.
Part 2: Improving Range & The Order Of Priority: We explore the Order of Priority, and effective and efficient techniques for improving range for all different types of restrictions. Keep in mind that not all techniques are appropriate for all dancers at all ties. The most effective technique will be based on what the dancer FEELS in that particular moment. Remember that this can change from day to day and over tie, so your flexibility program should be dynamic and responsive at all times.
Part 3: Improving Range Long Term: It is one thing to improve range in the moment, but to improve range exponentially over time is another. We look at the common reasons why flexibility often regresses after short term improvements, and ways to counter this for long-lasting change.
