Look (UK) - - FIT! -

Dance does ev­ery­thing. You get fit, tone your mus­cles, and it’s a mem­ory boost be­cause you’re pick­ing up chore­og­ra­phy and re­mem­ber­ing steps,’ says Kim­berly. Want a bod like Kim’s? Try her three favourite movesé THE WAIST WHITTLER Pirou­ettes are a great way to work on your abs. Bal­anc­ing on one leg, try mak­ing a com­plete turn around your­self. As you im­prove your bal­ance, you’ll also be im­prov­ing your core mus­cles.

THE CORE CRE­ATOR The hum­ble hand­stand can im­prove your core fitness, which helps with pos­ture and bal­ance. To start out, get on all fours with your heels against a wall. Keep your shoul­ders di­rectly over your wrists and lift your bum up to form an up­side down V shape. Step up the wall, one leg at a time keep­ing knees bent. Straighten both legs, en­gage abs and lift shoul­ders up away from ears. Play around with tak­ing one leg off the wall at a time.

THE LEG LENGTHENER Dancing is about learn­ing to use your body to its full ef­fect. If you’re not up to the stage where

you can do the splits mid-air, strengthen your legs by start­ing with squat jumps. Lower into a squat and spring up be­fore low­er­ing down to a squat. Re­peat 10 times per ses­sion.
