Kick Line Basics

Do you want to learn how to do stunning kicks, either in a group or on your own? Glorious kicks come from a combination of core strength and hamstring flexibility, but, unless you have proper upper body carriage, nobody will notice your legs at all! Learn all about the mechanics of high kicks, how to properly hook-up in a kick line and how to use your upper body and head to enhance your kicks. We will cover basic anatomy, stretching and strengthening exercises, choreography tips and tricks and will learn an entire kick-line routine.
