Stretch and Warmup Videos and DVDs 2
Stretching relaxes your mind and tones up your body. It reduces muscle tension, prevents injuries, increases your flexibility and improves your circulation. It prepares your muscles for sports and other activities, it's the perfect warm-up and/or cool-down.
DVD Only - $19.99 This is a revolutionary dance training tape for both modern dance and exercise enthusiasts. This unique program is designed to prepare dancers for rehearsal and performance. The technique's creator, Lester Horton, was determined to develop a warm-up that did not limit how the body could move, and that was anatomically corrective. As a result, his method has enormous variety, range and complexity. Many noted dancers began their dance training with Horton and used the technique with their own students. Horton protégées lead a group of young professional dancers through leg swings, metatarsal presses and fortifications in this exclusive presentation. For the professional dancer who needs to build strength, agility and flexibility, this tape provides important injury-preventing techniques. It's also an excellent way for the non-dancer or athlete to do a non-aerobic workout that helps develop grace and relieves muscle stress.
