HOW TO GUIDES
Wobble boards are an excellent way to improve your core stability and will have a direct impact on your dancing in a fairly short period of time!
We stock a robust wooden board, ideal for dancers of all ages. It has a non-slip surface and is easy to store away when not in use.
These examples of foot exercises are particularly useful for dancers in preparation for pointe work - but also good for all dancers!
Always discuss any exercises with your teacher before starting, as they will know your individual strengths and weaknesses.
