PILATES FOR DANCERS | WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Introducing the Pilates Mat Work Method and its extensive body conditioning benefits for dancers. Pilates is an essential exercise system for dancers, activating and working those deep, hard to isolate muscles, resulting in strength, tone, control and grace – everything a ballerina needs!
Pilates perfectly supports and compliments the tough expectations on a dancer’s body with Joseph Pilates originally working with professional ballet dancers of the New York City Ballet at his Manhattan studio since the 1920’s. With a mindful focus on conditioning, key exercises target core strengthening, postural alignment, coordination and tracking of limbs offering dancers a way to improve technique as well as rehabilitate from injury safely and effectively.
With the Pilates practice, students can expect a full body workout whilst learning a valuable tool kit of helpful exercises to support ongoing training.
