Irish Dance Fitness Training

Coaching Carriage & Posture

Everyone has a question, or something that they really need to know when it comes to getting fit for Irish Dancing, but what kind of fitness do they really mean? From getting through that set dance, to post class recovery, and even fixing one’s carriage, these are all areas where the fitness of the Irish Dancer needs to be addressed.

Flexibility, Muscle Strength, Endurance, Breathing, Nutrition, Recovery & Injury Prevention are just some of the areas which I go into in my Irish Dance Fitness training. When coaching and explaining how to improve each of these areas, I incorporate specific Irish Dance exercises which help the body to use the correct muscles to adequately prepare and condition itself for the intense performance required at every level of Irish Dancing.

Videos, Articles and Blogs are just some of the ways in which many of these methods and some of these issues can be addressed. However, for maximum potential, personalised instruction via Workshops and online based training, would provide the most benefit for all those involved.

I hope that you thoroughly enjoy it all, and have fun!
