Never has the process of warming-up been more important than for professional dancers. With all the work they put their bodies and feet through day in and day out, kick-starting the muscles and circulation is both an easy and effective way to ease into their daily routines.
From core activation to foam-rolling stretches, Australian Ballet coryphée Brooke Lockett shows us how she starts her day with a series of warm-ups anyone can emulate on the yoga mat.
The Australian Ballet performs Coppélia from December 2-21. Visit The Australian Ballet for more details.
