How to warm up for flamenco dance practice

We are often asked to create videos to help dancers warm up before their practice.

We have never created such a video because warming up the body for dancing means different things to different people as it should be because we all have different bodies with different needs.

A good warm up will prepare the body for the dance movements that you plan to do by gradually increasing your heart-rate and circulation. It should also include mobility work that prepares the joints and the muscles for more intense movement. The warm-up also helps to prepare you mentally for what is to follow.
