Stretches to help with leg holds in dance? And ways to increase stamina for long routines?

by admin on November 21, 2009

Please list/describe a few stretches (besides the splits) that will help with leg holds (first position) in dance.

Also, what are some good ways of increasing stamina quickly for long routines? (besides dancing the routines over and over)

Thank you!!

I would say stretch your leg on the barre and practice bringing it up to barre/ledge without holding it. For stamina, do a lot of short bursts of things like running, biking, cardio etc, instead of doing long slow ones.

Hope this helps.
