Hi, I'm Holly Del Rosso and this is safe stretches for ballet feet arches. Dancer's arches go through so much stress from all the jumping and pressure, jumping up and down on the floor. So I'm going to teach you guys some safe stretches that you can do before, after your ballet routines. To stretch the plantar fascia tendon in your foot, you're going to put one foot over the other, bringing your toes towards your knee. So you're just going to push until you feel a nice little stretch in your heel and you should also feel it in the arch of your foot, hold it right here for ten seconds, release and then hold it again for another ten seconds, two sets of ten seconds would be sufficient for this and another stretch for your arches, you're going to grab a belt or a strap and you're just going to wrap it around the ball of your foot, lifting your foot about a couple inches off the ground, really bringing your toes towards your body. So you're going to hold it right here and then you're going to point your toe and once you have it right here you're going to hold for ten seconds and release. So flexing, hold for ten and pointing, hold for ten. You're really going to feel this in the top of your foot when you point and you're going to feel it in your heel and in your arches when you flex. I hope this can help all you ballerinas out there. Thank you so much for watching.
