Dance Conditioning is like taking vitamins: You know you should do it, but it doesn’t always happen. I’ve found that building dance conditioning into my routine, is one of the best things I have ever done to improve my dancing. It helps strengthen my body, improve balance and coordination, increase my endurance, and build flexibility!  This completely elevates the way I use my body on the dance floor.

HERE is your prescription of Vitamin C – “C” for Conditioning. Take as many times as you need to, daily. 🙂
