Follow these tips for better dancing using better breathing:
It seems odd, but many of us do not breathe well. When we do breathe well, we will dance much better.
1. Put your hands on your ribs. Elbows are out to the side. If you put your hands on your hips and then slide your hands up to your rib cage, this can help you find the right placement.
2. Think about expanding your ‘back’ NOT the chest but your back area. Feel your back and sides moving in and out…you should feel a deeper breath develop. REMEMBER your chest is not rising up and down.
3. The lower parts of your lungs are expanding out and in, and your core is pulled in.
4. You can do this standing, sitting or lying on the floor. I found standing best.
