Pilates can be an important part of a dancers cross training as it increases strength and flexibility simultaneously.
It targets the deep muscles closest to the spine which encourages proper alignment.
Pilates draws your attention to creating a better balanced dancer.
"Today I encourage dancers to explore how Pilates can help them physically and mentally for their career. Pilates is an ideal form of complete body conditioning as the focus is on strengthening the deep support muscles and balancing all muscles groups around the joints of the entire body."
-Karen Kain, Artistic Director National Ballet of Canada
