yes, exactly - stretch and release - but remember to breath through it. For me that is the most important part.

We do that streach only less invloved in my jazz class... we don't do partnering either. Any good stradle stretches that improve flexibility?

I took a stretching techniques class in college and we did this strech and a lot of other resistance stretching! I agree, it works wonderfully!

Aside from ballet, I take jazz too (in fact, one of my reasons to take ballet is to improve my jazz). I'll start doing this right away! I'm sure it's going to help a lot.

We do exercises like these sometimes, too. I'm excited to try it out! LOL :)

I am so excited to try this! I think we do something like it at our studio, but we were never told to resist and then relax, so I'm hoping this will help!

the best strech ive ever done it wall streches. what i like about them is you don't have to be in a decent sized room, and you can do while you doing other stuff like watching TV or reading

Thanks for the tip. I took a break from dance for a couple of years and my flexibility has really decreased. I am definately going to give it a try.

it sounds really good, we've done similar stretches at both dance class & school dancing, but i dont really understand what you mean about bringing your leg to the side of your body. is your foot still near your head, just next to it?

Very interesting; but I think I would need to write this variation down ,study it,then decide whether I should use it in my routine for my younger students or the senior ones.
