The “CORE” of Dancing
When you think of your core, what comes to mind? What if I told you it was so much more than just your abs? Our core makes up everything beneath the surface of what we see. They are all the small muscles that stabilize our bodies and help us control the most intricate of movements. In fact, our core is the foundation for all limb movement and makes up the muscles of our torso and pelvis. The muscles of our core are responsible for transferring power from one part of our body to another during movement. Imagine moving and feeling as if you had no control of your body. Imagine not being able to feel your muscles pulling you into, or out of a position. Without a core, none of this would be possible. The art and sport of dance relies upon your core to move you.
