LWGC is very excited to announce a community collaboration with Jaykays Dance Company!
We are so pleased that so many of you have embraced our Zoom sessions and we wanted to make sure that we continued to provide an exciting and varied timetable for all of our gymnasts that will enhance and build upon the skills you’re already working towards. We very much hope this will be the first of many collaborations!
Jaykays Dance Company will be hosting 55 minute Zoom Ballet Workshops exclusively for LWGC members over the next three consecutive Fridays. Ballet is a great subject to study alongside gymnastics training. Ballet improves posture, co-ordination, core strength, balance, strength and flexibility which are all complimentary to gymnastics. Ballet is also an Art that allows for expression, musical interpretation and communication.
During this "Ballet Basics" workshop, gymnasts will be introduced to the basic ballet positions and steps. These will be combined into exercises that students will perform to music. Students will also work on turn, pirouette and leap progressions as well as exercises that help to improve flexibility.
