Balletband is a heavy-duty, latex resistive stretching band specifically designed for dancers offering a hands-free alternative to traditional stretching techniques.
Professional ballet dancer, Todd Fox created Balletband in 1998 when he witnessed a fellow professional dancer stretching in a similar fashion using a plain bicycle inner tube. The product initially sold under the name ‘Stretcherz’ but was officially changed to ‘Balletband’ in 2005. Made of natural rubber and latex compounds, no resistance/exercise band on the market is more durable or offers a more convenient form of resistive stretching specifically designed for dancers. These heavy duty bands allow dancers the ability to stretch hands-free, in fundamental balletic positions.
Dancers love this product and Todd says he’s currently researching the development of a latex-free Balletband. Multicolored bands are also on the horizon!
Todd would like to give away ONE Balletband to THREE Dance Advantage readers.
Instructions for use are sent with each product. Looping Balletband (retail $14.95) around one foot and the opposite shoulder, dancers can stretch and strengthen their extension in arabesque, à la seconde, or croisé. The band’s resistance also effectively works the legs and turnout in a seated straddle position
