Dancers often need a foot stretcher to stretch and strengthen the upper arch of the foot for correct positioning of the feet in Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, General Ballet and Pointe Ballet. A common upper arch exercise is performed by having a fellow dancer or dance instructor hold down the foot, pressed to the floor, while the dancer lowers the back of the leg toward the floor, stretching the upper arch of the foot. This is difficult for a single dancer to do without some assistance. It may also be painful as the heel is pressed against the hard dance floor.
Serious dancers will spend thousands of dollars each year on pointe ballet shoes, pointe ballet lessons, a ballet barre and other equipment to help improve their ballet technique. For just a few dollars, you can have the SuperiorArch®, the best Foot Stretcher for Ballet available anywhere!
The foot and the upper arch are often overlooked when it comes to warm-up, stretching and exercise routines. The competitive arch comes from correct stretching and strengthening exercises which are critical components to successful training. The foot is a highly complex and delicate structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. Before starting any serious stretching or exercise routine, including using the SuperiorArch®, consult your coach, instructor or other qualified professional.
