From time to time, I had have had the pleasure of working with Just For Kix in various capacities.
One topic that comes up over and over again is “How do I improve my flexibility?”
In my experiences, I have found that many dancers focus quite a bit on stretching hamstrings, but much less on stretching hip flexors. Many times, the hip flexor flexibility is limiting leaps and kicks more than the hamstrings.
A few years ago, I wrote an article for Just for Kix on a circuit to improve hip flexor flexibility. Here is a link to that article. Give it a try and leave us a comment with your thoughts and questions.
