I have been searching for articles that are relevant to our current situation. As we embark on this new kind of dancing in Term 2 I think this is a very important subject as students do their own stretching at home. There are many youtube channels and Insta accounts of dancers doing stretching videos and some of these include overstretching the body in ways that are not safe.
Please share Extreme Stretching: The Risks of Sitting in Oversplits with your dancers so that they understand the risks of extreme stretching on their bodies.
Happy remote learning in school and dancing.
