Co-ordination for Dancers

Miss Savva


Why concentrate on co-ordination?

Let’s talk about coordination, which includes balance, stability, agility, and all the other impressive things your muscles can do when your brain directs them properly.FACT- coordination training can actually help you prevent injuries!

In your small groups, pairs or by yourself, have a think about what co-ordination it is? And why do we need it for dancing?


What is it? Why do we need it?

Coordination of simultaneous movements of different parts of the body which are involved in whole-body actions. Coordination, although directed by the brain, is affected by changes in the muscles and joints


Co-ordination is important to every dancer, no matter what stage you are at. If you have the right sense of co-ordination, it will allow each movement to be easier and it helps secure those challenging steps


Lets face it, there's a lot of multi-tasking for dancers because all at once you have to think about each part of your body. I think though, if you really focus on making sure the arms are coordinated, this is what can make al the difference in a ballet dance lesson.


Fun activities:Test you co-ordination.

In rows of 4, you must travel across the room as followed by your teacher. The following animals must! Be interpreted:Cow crawlsMonkey and bunny slides/crawlsGiraffe walksSpider crawlsCrab side walk
