DanceSport Series (DSS) - Correct Posture for a Dancer | 3 Tips

Welcome back to DanceSport Series! In this video, we speak about the correct posture needed for dancing in general and how you can prepare your body for movement.

Besides giving us proper presentation throughout our performance, posture is essential in actually preparing and toning your body to dance in the first place. To do so, you must roll your hips under, elongating the spine, and keep your core toned. You can also think of rolling your pelvis under and up (forward). Extend the spine, by stretching it up and down simultaneously, through the top of your head, down through your sit bone, keeping this tone throughout the entire practice or presentation.

Also, do not break the rib cage, or rather open it outward. You will end up losing more flexibility in your body action. Instead, think of rounding your shoulder blades.

For a full tutorial on the correct posture needed by dancers, watch the video above and get moving! We hope it will help your performance in the best way.
