Many dancers struggle to maintain a good top line and if you don’t get your topline right then your good footwork often goes unnoticed. So we are going to try a range of exercises to improve topline which will include the use of the topline dance frame. (During the Blackpool Dance Festival we acquired a medium (for adults) and a small sized frame (for children) from the DSI stand.) The topline dance frame is an aid to preventing unnecessary movement in the sides of the body, shoulders and arms, by giving instant physical feedback to the wearer. By learning to stop these unnecessary movements when the frame is felt as resistance, the top body becomes stable and provides better connection and balance for each partner.
Simple exercises with quick results
