stretch and then hold


Recommended Posts

One of my old ballet teachers used to make us do the foot and hand stretch and then let go hold the leg up and flex and point a bunch of times. Is this beneficial or bad?

It's okay to let go and hold briefly or bring it down totally controlled. However, I would not ask young students to hold it up there very long.
