PILATES EQUIPMENT SESSIONS FOR DANCERS
Enrollment is limited to 5 people so pre-registration is recommended
•Dancers looking to improve technique, strength, coordination, alignment and flexibility
•Dancers recovering from or coping with an injury
Pilates experience suggested, but not required
Small group sessions are an affordable way for dancers to experience pilates equipment and receive personalized feedback and assistance.
Guided by me, each dancer will progress independently through a unique program of exercises designed to suit their individual needs and goals
This class starts with pilates-based conditioning. A somatic approach gives dancers the time and space to connect into their bodies throughout a series of balancing, strength-building exercises that move from lying down to sitting and kneeling to standing. Principals from this portion of the class are then applied to a ballet barre. Combinations are simple and many are repeated from week to week so that dancers can elevate their heart rate, moving steadily from one exercises to the next with minimal, efficiently-delivered feedback. Class finishes with some waltzing and turning and a bit of jumping.
Look for more 60:40 classes, spring and summer 2018
