Even the best sense of rhythm, the most careful technical training, and the most astute dance intuition aren't enough to
make a dancer truly excel; you also need focused strength, balance, and flexibility to execute the movements with power
and grace. Conditioning for Dance improves your technique and performance in all dance forms by strengthening the body's
core (abdominal and back muscles) while improving coordination, balance, and alignment and optimizing flexibility. The
result is more lift without tension, deeper pliés, higher jumps with less effort, tighter turns, and improved extension
and turnout.

Conditioning for Dance is the result of years of practical experience combined with scientific and anatomical analysis.
Author Eric Franklin is an internationally known dancer, teacher, choreographer, and writer. His innovative, proven
techniques will help you execute key dance skills better as you

-strengthen the muscles you use in dance by performing exercises with elastic resistance bands;

-start and move in proper alignment using imagery;

-improve your balance and release tension through playful exercises with small balls;

-develop leg and torso power that translates to higher jumps and tighter turns; and

-optimize your flexibility through touch, movement awareness, and imagery.The book features 102 imagery illustrations
paired with dance-specific exercises to help you maximize body–mind conditioning and develop more fluid mobility,
balance, and tension release. The book culminates with a 20-minute, full-body workout routine designed to help dancers
warm up, condition, and refine their dance technique. You'll learn how to execute lifelong dance skills that give power
without the risk of injuries.

By working the muscles through movements and ranges of motion that approximate the demands of your chosen dance form,
you directly enrich your performance capabilities. And as you strengthen the body's core, stretch to gain just the right
amount of flexibility, and incorporate the power of the mind, you unleash your full artistic and physical potential.
