IMPORTANCE OF CORE STRENGTH

Core strength isn’t only integral to dancers and athletes, it’s also required for daily life.


Our core allows us to move in any direction while also assisting and maintaining our balance, posture, and overall body strength. When we think of our core we tend to think of just the abdominal muscles, but it also includes the muscles in our back and around our pelvis. There are five main muscles we utilise and engage when working on our core strength. These include the erector spinae (back muscle that extends your trunk), rectus abdominus (the ‘six pack’ muscles), obliques (the side muscles allowing rotation and flexibility), transverse abdominus (wraps around the front and side of your trunk to stabilise the pelvis), and multifidus (back muscle that supports the spine).

Listed below are six exercises that will keep these muscles strong:

- crunches

- reverse crunches

- toe taps

- bicycle crunches

- side dips

- mountain climbers
