How to Do a Leg Hold and Improve Flexibility


In this instructional video by dance expert Ali Geraets, you'll learn essential dance skills to enhance your flexibility and become a more well-rounded dancer. Ali focuses on teaching you how to execute a leg hold and a leg grab hold, both critical for advanced dance routines. Even if you struggle with flexibility, Ali provides tips that can help you improve over time. Start with mastering the correct body placement for a successful leg hold. If you're not naturally flexible, Ali advises using your arm muscles to draw your leg closer, rather than straining your upper body. She also shares a pro-tip that grabbing closer to your ankle can make the leg feel lighter. Watch a demonstration featuring one of Ali's dancers, which includes various leg grab variations—front, side, and even stacked-hip leg grabs. Boost your flexibility and core strength as you learn to execute these complex leg holds and leg grab holds with ease!
