Hi, my name is Sarah Luna, and today we're going over leg exercises to make dancer's legs strong. Dancers are extreme athletes, so it's really important that they have strong legs so that they can execute everything that they need to do. So, I'm here at Equinox South Bay to show you some Pilates footwork that will help strengthen the rest of the leg. Go ahead and lay all the way down into your Reformer. Place the feet on the foot bar, toes on, as well. Inhale, press the legs out, lower the heels underneath and bring yourself back in. You are to do this a couple of times, just to warm up your parallels, squeezing the inner thighs. Then, go ahead and slide up to the heels, flex the feet so you're in dorsiflexion. Press out, in and out, there, a couple more times so we start to get the thighs nice and engaged. Once you've done about five, go back down to the toes, go to your Pilates B position, or Pilates first position, and press out and in, there, squeezing the heels, drawing the inner thighs together, squeezing the glutes. Go ahead and bring yourself back in, turn back to parallel, press out, lower and lift those heels down and up, keeping your legs nice and straight, and then go into running, bending one knee at a time. This will really strengthen the ankles, the calves, and all the way up into the thighs and glutes.
