You know how professional dancers are REALLY flexible...they can kick themselves in the face, pretty much.
I was wondering how I could get really flexible? I am a ballerina, this is my fourth year. I can get my heel stretch on my right leg almost completely up, but my left only about a half foot higher than my shoulders. I also want to get my back more flexible. Thanks in advance! ;D

Well i'm so happy to hear that you are aiming high:D Thats sound great and i can understand where your coming from because i'm going through the same situation! First splits everday for ATLEAST 2 minutes on EACH leg. Also mounts for the same time as splits and also lots of hamstring, quadricepts, calve, and glute streches. With your back i would recommend those back cambre`s that i do in ballet and if you do ballet you would probably know what i mean and also warming up improves your flexibility heaps. Anyway hope this helps :D

Hey!
I'm a jaz dancer and to get flexible fast I slip as often as possible and often have a night where I have a "flexibility workout" consisting of stretching everything intensly and holding splits for as long as I can than after that proping a leg on a chair and aiming for the ground with my pelvis. In summer stretching is eaiser to accomplish because your body is loose and relaxed from the weather

I would stretch everyday and sit in ur splits for at least 2 minutes each. Backbends are good for getting ur back stretchy.

Stretch as much as you can, but not too much where you'll hurt/tear a muscle. While you stretch make sure to breath to give your muscles oxygen.
Once you get your splits, works on your oversplits, which professional dancers have making them extremely flexible.
With dedication and self-motivation, you can do it. Good luck!:)

Well you can stretch everyday, like if you want to make your spine to be flexible you can do back bend, for legs do a split any kind, but if it hurts don't go all the way or else you can rip your muscle, for your feet role your ankles. If you want your body to be more flexible watch it on youtube.com .

I'm starting cheerleading in 6 month and I'm not flexible but I can reach my toes at least. I have always wanted to be flexible but I have 6 month to become it because the group who I'm goin to join is 1 year advanced. I did 4 years jazz dance but I really want to reach this goal. Does anyone have proposition for me?

If you want to become flexible, the best way is to stretch everyday. It's EXTREMELY important that you do it everyday or else it won't work. so keep it everyday and eat healthy and the results will be satisfying!!
