Well Done Dancers

Its been a very busy couple of weeks for our pupils. On the 20th November we took our team to compete at the Wythenshawe Forum Manchester and then on the 27th November most of our pupils took their medal tests.

I have now posted some photos onto the schools Instagram page, click here to see. It was great to see so many of you getting involved and enjoying your dancing. On medal test day we also enjoyed some fantastic home baked cakes. Well done to all those who helped out raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Simple exercises with quick results

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.
