Intro To Lyrical "Floor Work" / Jess & Lex - Ep05
Alexis Gilbert • 31m
This class focuses on how to properly do floor work, plus we add onto our combo. Floor work is so much more than just rolling around on the floor; your core must be activated 24/7, upper body must stay tall, and your legs need to remain strong! Almost every lyrical dance incorporates floor work, so it’s important to make it look easy and effortless.
(Pro tip: Floor work shouldn't hurt, so go at your own pace, be gentle on yourself, and grow as you go!)
Your Instructors: Jessica Richens & Alexis Gilbert
