BalletDad1004 Posted December 3, 2010 Report Share Posted December 3, 2010 I'm a dad of two pre-professional ballet dancers. They are gifted in many areas, but one of their weaknesses is they aren't naturally as strong as some of the other dancers at their level. We would like to find or develop a workout program to supplement their regular dance training to improve strength, increase jump height, and give them a little more muscle definition. The school recommends taking an extra conditioning class once a week, but based on my personal experience with strength training, I believe they need a workout they can do at least 3 times per week to get the kind of results we're after. Does anyone have any advice on this issue? Do you know of any training books or programs for this? Or any good personal trainers we can get in contact with to develop a training program? Thanks for your help! Quote Link to comment
