Isolations may seem old school, but I always integrate them into my jazz-based classes. It is so important for students to understand how to use certain parts of their body- together and separately.
Isolation exercises can include:
7. Rib cage
It is important to isolate forwards, backwards, and side to side, as well as in a circular motion.
Once students master specific isolation exercises, it is fun to work on coordination in combining differing parts of the body.
