VIRTUAL: Learning Splits for Dance & Gymnastics
This virtual event is hosted by our community partner, TwistsNTurns.
In this one time class, students will master their splits and backbends through fun, safe stretches that will lengthen their muscles and help them relax. A note from the instructor: As a teacher of rhythmic and artistic gymnastics, I believe that the girl who grows most healthfully, is the girl who is given the opportunity to experiment and develop skills in a positive environment, where fun is the foundation and personal excellence is the ideal! I’ve trained for 15 years at a USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center and am now bringing my expertise to you! My flexibility program provides a comprehensive and well-rounded workout regime combining stretching, coordination and strength. Classes enhance each girl’s health, self image, and well-being through personalized coaching. Girls do not need a particular skill level for this course, as they will go through exercises and techniques dependent on their abilities. The class will begin with some light movement to get muscles warm. Then we will transition into stretching, to loosen up the muscles. Our stretching exercises will focus on lengthening the legs, hips and back.
Fee: $15 per girl, $10 per adult
