Before a dance class (or any workout session!), it's important to take some time to give your body a proper warm up. Warming up is a series of activities that gradually increase your heart rate and blood flow to muscles.
My favorite toning exercise! Wide Plie What It Does: Tones quads, inner thighs, and calves. How to Do It: do deep plies, bending the knees deeply until they're directly over your toes. On the last plie, lift and lower heels together 10 to 20 times.
Heel Lift: -->What It Does: Tones hips, glutes of the lifted leg, and quads of the standing leg; --> How to Do It: Push heel toward the ceiling. Pump leg up and down 10 to 20 times. Repeat on other leg.
