Yea, that is a good one. We do it every day at rehersal. Another good one is to lay on your back, bring your leg to your side, but keep it on the floor. This improves your Y stand ALOT!

your a dance star!

Sounds great but girls should know that they should do some other stretching before they do something this extreme

this stretch can only be dangerous if done INCORRECTLY. if you do it right and dont push yourself too far, its perfectly safe. we do this on my dance team and my teacher would know. believe me. she has a major in performing arts and has coached inumerable winning teams in the past. if you do the stretch correctly it will not cause any harm so dont get too paranoid about it. if you find a good book all about stretches thats written by a professional dancer (i have 6) you will find this stretch in there. get some of those books. they really help with your flexibility. happy to help!

You can also do this stretch by yourself. You can use a towel or a theraband or even a belt and you create the resistance yourself. Again though when you go to pull the leg closer you must totally relax (do not lock the knee). You can also do it in the split. When you go down as far as you can-leave your hands on the floor-press your extended legs against the floor for your 20 count(you will come up some from the split) then relax and see how the range in movement changes when you slide back down. If you are beyond a split- you could do this also- but with that much flexibility, I don't feel it would be necessary.

Yours in the dance, Dancerspirit

becareful first-timers not to overdo it. it's a pretty intense stretch and you don't want to tear anything. but yes, it does work wonderfully.
