What is "GYRO?"

As dancers, we know that cross training is vital to the health and longevity of our careers and bodies. One form that is becoming increasingly popular with dancers is the Gyrotonic Expansion System®.

Foot Stretchers: To Use or Not To Use?

Foot Stretchers: To Use or Not To Use?

No matter what genre of dance you do, we at Allegro know how important beautifully bendy, flexible feet are to you (okay, Tap Dancers, we hear you...this one might not be for you). We all work for that elusive "banana foot" and drool over ballerina feet on Instagram. It is true that foot stretchers are among our most popular tools both in store and online, as well as sighted in every dancer's bag, however, because we believe in knowing and understanding how our bodies work, we think it is super important to educate yourself on these tools as well. Keep calm and read (and stretch) on.
