Happy new year dancers! Now we are all guilty of skipping or cutting corners in our warm up, so let's make 2024 the year we nail that warm up routine. Principal dancer Bethany Kingsley Garner has given us and insight to up her go to warm up routine, take a look!
Using your breath, stretch forward and release your hamstring, for a deeper stretch cross your arms above your head.
Start to get the blood flow going with a dynamic hip opening,
Make sure it feels comfortable for you by taking it to a different level to find your height.
Massaging your feet, and waking up your toes with a side tendu moving into a plie, preparing your body for continued movement and finding you stability.
Take to the barre and engage you ballet posture,
Lifting up the arches and calves in your own speed.
Massaging out any little tight parts and connecting your breath with the movement,
This movement will make you feel expansive and confident to take to the barre.
