Hip Flexor Stretch for Irish Dancers
Updated: Apr 13
An Irish dance swing, click, leap and quiver all use the hip flexor muscles to execute these movements. However if your hip flexors become tight, they can cause a host of movement problems. Add this hip flexor stretch to your flexibility routine at the END of your dance class.
- place one knee on the floor and against a wall (you may want to place a small towel or pad under your knee)
- step your other foot forward positioning your knee directly over your ankle
- maintaining a neutral pelvis (no anterior tilt/sway back), lean forward stretching the back leg hip flexor
- hold for 30 seconds and repeat on the opposite leg
