I asked almost 200 dancers what the #1 skill they needed to improve on. There were three front runners far above the rest. But the #1 skill Irish dancers reported that they need to improve on…
Dancers have been struggling to keep their arms in, backs straight and shoulders steady but haven’t been able to make impactful progress. Until now. I’m here to give you a step-by-step guide to:
improving the mobility in your shoulders so you have the range of motion to bring them back
developing the strength in your upper back and shoulders to maintain their position while dancing
developing and activating the muscles in your arms and chest to keep arms straight and by your sides
increase core stability (stomach, back, hips, glutes) to maintain a strong upper body
improved hip mobility so that limitations in your hips aren't effecting your posture
On the Target Training Online Institute, a comprehensive strength and mobility training program that targets the specific needs of Irish dancers, we have a 30 Day Posture Challenge. It is one of the Target Training athlete’s favorite programs, is chock-full with transformative exercises, and develops everything you need to improve your posture once and for all!
