In Occupational Therapy, we have also been working on balance and the hips. I have been working on stairstepping up the steps and then down the steps slowly. I have been doing Interactive Metronome (IM) at the same time every day. It is necessary to have your balance in order to do Interactive Metronome well. Especially for the toe tapping exercises in IM. My score on one of my toe taps is not as good as the other, so we want to clean up the balance.
Also, I have been working on flexing my feet.
