TECHNIQUE & DRILLS
When it comes to technique, attention to detail can separate your squad from the pack. Clough teaches and demonstrates how to tighten connections, and provides drills and tips for making your movements sharp, quick and in synch.
Ten types of kicks are shown, from basic moves like the open kick and straight kick to more advanced moves like popping fans and the Just For Kix original Kixster Kick. Clough also shows common technique errors and things to look for that when corrected will sharpen your performance.
Make your routines look effortless. Clough advocates staying in great shape in order to be able to perform routines with stamina. Her dancers demonstrate a cardio endurance drill that simulates a performance without needing a fully choreographed routine. In addition, this drill saves practice time because you're working on endurance and dance technique at the same time.
Increase the power and height of your kicks and jumps and reduce injuries! Clough shares several drills and exercises designed to build strength in the quad muscles, glutes and core while reinforcing technique.
Learn advanced partner stretches to take your flexibility to the next level. Clough shares nearly 20 drills and stretching exercises to lengthen muscles and maximize your dancers' flexibility.
The excellent demonstrations on this DVD will enable you to see exactly how each technique and drill should be performed. This dance DVD is the framework for teaching dancers great technique for high kicking!
