Dancer Pose is an excellent balance pose that helps us build stability and posture while stretching our hips and legs. While this pose might be challenging for kids, we find that kids will try over again and again to find their balance. It’s okay to topple over–we can keep trying together. Think of how dancers must practice their moves to get it right so it’s okay if you fall over or wobble–it’s all part of the dance!
Pose: Dancer Pose Ages:Appropriate for kids who can balance on one leg. Or younger kids can use a wall, chair or table to help prop them up. Mantra: I am elegant
