pointers_for_irishdance_ •Toe stands part 2•
Requested by @irishdance.posts
The last part I gave some exercises to help you with your toe stands on this part I'm going to give a couple pointers on balance •Balance•
Balance is key for doing toe stands. Without balance toe stands are basically impossible. Here's a couple pointers to help your balance!
1) Look forward. When your doing toes you have to look forward and concentrate on where the flat of your tip is being placed.
2) Stand tall. A lot of times people bend their knees while doing toes. I used to do this a lot. It doesn't help your toes it actually makes it worse. Bending your knees or your body tends to throw off your balance and causes you to fall more often.
3) Stand on the flat of your tip. You have to stand on the flat of your tip, if you don't you will fall. If you look at the picture of Shannon Bradley doing her toe walks you will notice that she is standing on the flat of her tip.
4) Remember that if you fall its only a little ways and you can always get back up. Fear is a dancers worst enemy. Don't be afraid and then you will be able to conquer anything.
Hope this helps! Have an amazing day/night everyone!!! #irishdance #irishdancer #pointersforirishdance #toestands #shannonbradley #worldchampion #oireachtas #toewalks #balance #heavyshoes

erlysat They say it feels weird the first time but will feel good after awhile. It felt weird and good all at once. The hole in the tip helped get the air out and it was nice and fitted. Toe condoms are my favorite thing now. #IrishDancerProbs #preshfeis #irishdancer #toecondoms 11h

Is this a good idea? Please leave your thoughts below

We really hope that people enter and that it won't just be a fail

Just hashtag #idbuddysystem to get paired up with a bigger or smaller account, that help you reach your goals and all that jazz 😎

For example, me and @irishdance.xo are 'buddys'
