  • Flexibility

Dancing requires a great amount of flexibility, an important part of being healthy.
Dancers must strive to achieve full range of motion for all the major muscle groups. The greater the range of motion, the more muscles can flex and extend. Bending and stretching are the most required moves to perform while dancing.

  • Strength

Strength is defined as the ability of a muscle to exert a force against resistance, which is built in dancing by forcing the muscles to resist against a dancer’s own body weight.
Many styles of dance require jumping and leaping high into the air, which require tremendous strength of the major leg muscles.
