You can get a lot more done in less time with Active Isolated Stretching (book by Aaron Mattes pp 49-68) lower body stretches. Worked on three dancers yesterday and all three were shocked how much we got through in the narrow time window they had to stretch. Made some serious gait improvement and really reduced some low back pain that had become extremely annoying for the one. Also worked hard on restoring some much needed hip internal rotation and hip extension. Ballet training really beats folks up!!
