My Stretching Routine

“Fall In Love With Taking Care Of Yourself.”

Hello Everyone! I hope you are having an absolutely amazing August so far! I am bringing you my stretching routine. As I just got back from intensive training not to long ago, I was introduced and reminded of stretches that are really amazing for freeing up your body. Here’s a routine I put together to show you of all my go-to stretches for before, during, and after classes or workouts.

… Good Investments …

A few good things you may want to consider buying that I could not live without when it comes to stretching is:

  1. Therabands
  2. Cross Balls + Tennis Balls + Golf Balls
  3. Foam Roller

You can get these items at target or online. They are extremely useful for massaging out tender areas, kinks, and sore muscles. I highly recommend you get them.

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Have a great rest of your week, and I’ll see you all soon! I love you!

Dance Bag Must-Have’s!

Hey guys! Today’s topic is about the things that never ever EVER leave my dance bag. These are things geared more towards injury prevention and things that help muscle soreness, not necessarily things like Pointe Shoes and Ballet Flats, you know what I mean?

The first thing that never leaves my bag is Arnica Gel. This helps with bruising and soreness, and I use this quite a bit. Not going to lie, I bruise very easily, so I apply this to my rib cage and back right before partnering. Bruised ribs are a normal occurrence for me, no matter who I’m partnering with.

I also use Arnica Gel for sore muscles. If my shins begin to hurt or my calves start to cramp, I’ll put this on during class. After I get home, I will put this on any sore area of my body (i.e. hip flexers, quads, hamstrings, etc.) and it helps so much.

The next thing I use is called DMSO, which I like to refer to as “horse cream.” Let me tell you a little fun fact: this product is actually used for equestrian horses and race horses and helps with a horse’s sore muscles. About a year ago, right before my exam, I pulled my hamstring, and my teacher (Jana) was talking to her dad about it. He mentioned using DMSO on his shoulders (I believe) and how it helped with sore muscles. We decided to try it out, and he got me a bottle (to which I am grateful).

As soon as I used it  I could feel an immediate difference, and I’m talking IMMEDIATE. It has a slight icy-hot feeling and a cooling sensation, but it immediately relaxed my muscles. It doesn’t necessarily numb the pain, but it definitely helps with it. And yes, in case your either curious or worried, it is okay for humans to use. Just be sure to wash your hands after use.

KT tape is magic. I mean, I don’t know how it does it, but it helps your muscles relax. I’ve used this on days when my achilles and ankles were stiff and sore, and it helps so much. When I had shin splints, I use this, and it works its magic. I have no idea how, but it works. I use it quite a bit, and I actually need to get some more.

Pink Ankle Length Leg-Warmers. You’re probably thinking, “DUH!” but not even kidding, I wear them every single time. My lower legs are actually really sensitive to the cold, and tend to hurt and ache when they are cold. I wear the leg-warmers until my blood is flowing and they are really warm and then I take them off. If I have an extra achy ankle or shin splints, I wear them all the time. Keep warm, guys! Especially right now. I say (light) pink because it blends better with your tights.

Toe Spacers. It might sound weird, but if I spread my toes apart, you could probably fit an extra toe in between each one. I know, it’s disgusting, I kind of hate it. I have these teeny-tiny, thin silicon tabs that I made out of those toe cover-things (so technical, right?!), and it helps my toes stay in alignment. Fun fact, they actually have these little separators right here. In between my big and second toe, I use square shaped ones, since my toes are thinner that the bottom and get ridiculously thicker at the top. My toes will often be in immense pain from being out of alignment, so if you have a similar problem, I highly recommend trying out toe spacers. They’ll feel weird at first, but you will get used to them, I promise.

Cross-balls are so much better than tennis balls, guys. Invest in cross-balls because they get in there and do the job. In between classes/exercises, I roll out my feet to get all the kinks and cramps out and I find that my feet don’t feel as stiff. You can, of course, use it to roll out any other part of your body (i.e. hip flexers/gluteus, hamstrings, calves, etc.), but I use it mostly for my feet.

Another stretch-type thing (again, such technicality!) is a yoga block. I place the ball of my foot on the edge of the block and straighten my knee, and this stretches out the calf intensely, which is great for me because the calf stretch does absolutely nothing for me anymore.

Lastly, this contraption is a hand-held roller. Now, honestly, before I got this, I used a rolling pin. Yes, a rolling pin. Make it work, honey, make it work!!! You can find this in the yoga section of target, and it is so much more dance-bag friendly rather than a foam roller (which sits in the corner of my bedroom waiting for my return). I use this a lot to roll out my quads and calve especially, but sometimes I use it on my upper-back and my hip flexers.

Alright guys, that’s it for today’s blogpost! I hope you guys enjoyed it. If you have any friends who are in dance or might be interested in fitness at all, share this with them please! Thanks very much for reading! I love you all very much, and I’ll see you guys Sunday for Life On Pointe!

TO MY BALLERINA DREAMERS (And my ballet boys too) (Blogmas Day 3)

I’ve had people ask me what advice I would give to young dancers who want to become a ballerina or a ballet dancer. When I was younger, I was told that I would never be able to become a ballerina because I’m not flexible enough, talented enough, & because I couldn’t  jump high enough. Do you want to know what I did with that? I worked even harder. I went home every night and stretched longer and harder. I would ask my teachers how I could improve my jumping, then I’d go home and practice it.

To the young dancer who wants to become a ballet dancer, here’s my advice.

  • WORK HARD

I know a lot of people who will work hard in class and not do anything extra at home. Go that extra mile. Take the corrections your teachers give you and practice. Use your kitchen counter or ask your dad to build you a ballet barre! You can even use the back of a chair. Trust me, there are no excuses for why you can’t.

  • ASK YOUR TEACHERS FOR ADVICE

I do this a lot, and teachers are always surprised when I do. When you do this, they make a mental note to keep an eye on you to see what you do with their corrections. If you steward their corrections well and you work hard to fix it, you will see results. I guarantee it.

  • USE YOUR IMAGINATION

I feel like imagination is extremely important in dance. When I remember, I picture myself in the ballroom with the starry night sky from the movie BEAUTY & THE BEAST and I imagine like I’m dancing there. When I dance in that place, the movements and performance always come out and it truly does help my dancing.

  • LET NO ONE CRUSH YOUR DREAMS

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been told that I could never become a professional dancer for several reasons by a teacher I trained under for about five years. I almost let her crush my dream. But then I attended my first summer intensive and met an incredible teacher: Mr. Pegler. You guys should know him from my Life On Pointe series. He told me that it was possible if I worked hard. So ever since he told me this, I’ve worked my butt off, and let me tell you, every time I have a session with him, I feel like I get ten miles better.

It is possible, boys and girls. I promise, dreams really do come true.
