Hi, my name is Barbara Brenseke, and I'm from Train For The Game on Long Island. Today, we're going to talk about dance exercises for thighs. Who better to emulate for great thighs is those beautiful long-legged dancers. Some exercises that you can do to build muscles and have dancer legs will be a plie squat. You would need a chair or a wall, a banister, anything where you can hold onto for balance and do leg lifts. Bring your leg up straight, holding onto the banister, point your toe, bring your leg back down. These are called leg lifts. Do 20 with your leg pointed, lifting your leg up slowly, lowering slowly; do 10 or 20 with your toe pointed. Controlling the movement, leg up straight and leg down to the floor. Switch legs and repeat the motion. The next exercise is a plie squat. You want to stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder width. Toes are pointed out. You want to push your knees out to the side as you're bending your hips down towards the ground, pushing your buttocks to the back wall behind you. Slow and controlled movement, moving down slowly, coming up, exhaling on the way up.
