60 Day Challenge ONE
IMPROVE CLOSED HIP FRONT SPLITS, ARABESQUES, ATTITUDE DERRIÉRE
Hip Flexors and Quad, Outer Hip, Lateral Thigh and Calf, Deep 6 External Hip Rotators, Inner Hip and Thigh, Hamstrings, Shoulders, Mid-Back and Spine will be the focus during this phase as they can ALL oppose the positions we are aiming to improve. Daily warm up & vital conditioning videos are included. Variety is key to stretching. If you want to see safe and effective gains in your flexibility, it’s essential that your stretch routine needs variety! (Over 65 streaming video modules)
60 Day Challenge TWO
IMPROVE MIDDLE SPLITS, TILTS, LEG EXTENSIONS
Focus: How to find a neutral pelvis and spine. How to condition the deep core stabilizers of the spine even more so that the psoas can stop acting as a segmental spinal stabilizer of the lumbar spine and work only to flex the hips. For dancers this is crucial. There are a lot of hip issues in the dance world that could be avoided with proper conditioning. They are due to the psaos trying to do two jobs when it really needs to focus on one, hip flexion. (65+ streaming video modules. Daily routines.)

The most efficient and effective stretch sequences needed for...
Do your students practice their splits to get all the way down in the splits? (a.k.a sitting in the splits)
The short answer is NO.
If you are sitting in the splits, or as close as you can get right now, this is NOT going to help you achieve your splits all the way down.
What does our Flexibility Expert Christine have to say about it?
You don't run 24 or 26 miles without first running one mile to learn how to run a marathon. Splits are NOT a prerequisite for the actual splits.
To achieve the splits you target the muscles that oppose the splits.
You want to achieve your splits safely and effectively WITHOUT damaging your hamstrings. This is exactly what happens when you sit in your splits hoping eventually you will sink all the way down.
You can strain ligaments and muscles and even tear your muscles.
You can actually create long term problems and lose stability in the joint.
The goal can't be the tool. Don't sit in the splits (as far as you can go) to get your splits.
You must give yourself time and space to work up to the splits so you are not injured and creating setbacks in the process. Patience is KEY! You have to accept that.
Students are not getting the proper tools to achieve the splits which is why SO MANY struggle with this and can't succeed or succeed without creating future issues.
Splits are the foundation of many other positions in dance and yoga so it's best to start with a strong and correct foundation.
You can work on them 3x-4x a week for 30 minutes (yep that is all). Some people will get them in 3 weeks and some may take 60 days or more. It's not a competition and it's not a race.
Effective, Guided, Safe Programs with the Variety you need to Avoid Setbacks and See Results.
Adding variety into your daily and weekly stretch sequences ensures that you avoid under stretching and overstretching your students. It works to safely improve flexibility and mobility, while decreasing your chance of pain and injury.
The Dancer’s Ultimate Flexibility Bundle Professional Edition offers a lot of variety! In fact, this program includes over 65 yoga inspired stretches, all of which target a variety of muscles, to ensure that all muscles and muscle groups are sufficiently stretched. We want everyone participating to experience success. If you follow the programs... you will!
FLEXIBILITY GAINS ARE A SCIENCE
When seeking flexibility gains make sure you are training with an experienced and qualified instructor. They must be knowledgeable in anatomy, physiology, proper alignment & technique for dancers. There is no point in getting your leg up higher if everything else goes out of place or if you injure yourself.
Meet Christine, our Flexibility Expert!
*AVOID SHORTCUTS & INJURIES.
We are NOT a get flexible quick program! In fact, we don’t believe in taking shortcuts to reach your maximum flexibility. We believe that increasing your flexibility is a process that requires patience and consistency in conjunction with a safe and effective system. That is what our stretch programs are ALL about: providing dancers, dance instructors and dance studio owners safe and effective stretch systems for long-lasting and sustainable flexibility.
Taking shortcuts will bypass certain muscle groups and can increase your chance of injury. Unfortunately, many stretch related injuries happen over time and in small increments. Therefore, dancers are often unaware of the injury until it’s too late. So take a deep breath, slow down and commit to patiently going through the process of reaching YOUR maximum flexibility and range of motion.
Not ALL dancers are naturally flexible. And for a dancer, especially a beginning dancer, this can be very frustrating! But with the proper stretches, proper approach to stretching and proper stretch sequences EVERYONE can develop a healthy range of flexibility.
The Ultimate Flexibility Bundle does just that. It breaks down the steps, placement and alignment of each stretch. It teaches you how to approach stretching...and YES your approach matters a LOT! And it provides you with an easy to follow weekly stretch schedule. This program is designed for beginners to advanced students and everyone in between. If you do the program you will see progress!
Create the habit, practice with variety, be consistent and avoid setbacks!
We have people using our program from 8 to 65 years old!
2) Intermediate to Advanced:
Even the most advanced and flexible of dancers will benefit from our Ultimate Flexibility Bundle. Avoid future limitations to your turn out and extensions!
Due to the repetitive nature of dance and lack of variety of stretches in the dance world even the most flexible of dancers develop tension or tightness in some area of their body.
The courses in the Ultimate Flexibility Bundle Pro properly stretch ALL parts of the body! This ensures that dancers, even the most flexible ones, aren’t tight in some of the most hard to stretch areas. Such as, their deep 6 external hip rotators and abductors.
A VERY common place of tightness in dancers and one that if not properly stretched will limit many dance related movements such as, turn out, leg extensions, arabesques, penches and much, much more.

While attending and judging dance competitions in Utah, I noticed an increase in flexibility and lines with certain studios that hadn’t looked that way in previous years. I was slightly perplexed because I knew it was something more than just ballet that was getting these dancers to look the way they did. (Effortless flexibly, beautiful lines) After doing some investigating, I found out that these studios had implemented Christine's method into their program."
~Laila Hardman (Studio Owner)
"This training program has been professional and easy to navigate. Christine is extremely knowledgeable and clearly explains topics that are otherwise difficult to grasp. When looking at programs, safety has always been top priority for me as well as those whom I teach. I have full confidence that Christine provides a program that is not only safe, but healing and unbelievably effective!"
~Misty Myler (Teacher)
"I thoroughly enjoyed Christine's Training! All the information is so valuable and accessible. Christine teaches so many stretches and postures that aren't readily used in many dance classes and that take a different approach to the same stretches that have been around. They are so functional and great to add to your existing curriculum to vamp up your regular routine. I love that there are more dynamic postures as well, to help build mobility. I am a huge believer in mindful movement and utilizing the breath for dancers, and this training covers this as well, teaching the use of the breath to achieve the greatest results with the postures. Such a great training!"
~Whitnee Elaine (Teacher)
"I just wanted to let you know that I've attempted the first part of the "Front Splits" series, and I already love it. I am the director of Municipal Ballet Co., a small Salt Lake City ballet company. I've started to try dancing for myself again (after many years away,) and decided to try to conquer my fear of the splits (and other feats of flexibility.) I really like your philosophy, and I'm excited to try it regularly! Thank you."
~Sarah Longoria (Director of Municipal Ballet Co.)
