Poledance is probably the best decision I’ve made this year 💪
So we’ve established that a handful of Back On Pointe readers live in the Milwaukee area (some in Madison, one in Grafton, a couple right around Milwaukee, etc.). Now the other question: if we did an IRL meetup or event, what would you like it to include? What would you like to do?
I’ve gotten a number of questions about physical preparations for pointe, so here’s a workout to help you build strength and balance. Make sure you don’t sickle, maintain your turnout (except, of course, during the planks and burpees), and do two or more times a week.
I’ll also be making more dance posts in the future, including exercises to improve balance for all forms of dance, introduction to a pointe shoe, my before- and after-class routines, and more!
This is a fantastic progression. It teaches you how to stabilize the spine, while strengthening the core at the same time.
Get down on your mat and work those abs!
