Extreme flexibility is becoming the new normal. We're inundated with images on social media of dancers sitting in oversplits or contorting themselves into circus-like positions. But is it safe?

As a dance studio owner, you want to make a positive impact on the lives of our students and do it safely. So if you're looking for more clarity around what to stretch, when to stretch and how to stretch, this podcast is for you.

In this episode, Christine Jones of mUvmethod covers:

  • Flexibility and Mobility: what they are, what limits them and what improves them
  • What overstretching actually is.
  • The three reasons she believes it’s happening
  • And the solutions to avoid overstretching while safely maximizing flexibility and joint range of motion to ensure your dancers meet all flexibility milestones in order to meet the technical side of dance with ease and efficiency all while spending less time each week stretching… Crazy right?

Running a dance studio is hard work, and growing your studio is even more of a challenge. No matter if you're just starting out—or perhaps you're a well-established owner; we understand that it's a uniquely demanding and personal business to own and operate.

As studio owners ourselves, we've been there. But, it's also very possible to be a happy owner of a thriving dance business that you love.
