“Enhance your Dance”
For the past 3 years, I’ve been fortunate to treat some amazing but most importantly talented entertainers/ performers. If you don’t know me, I have a passion for dance, it is it’ own language. As a kid, growing up in a large family- resources and time dedication from parents was limited so I couldn’t continue to dance.
In this journey, I fell in love working with dancers. What people don’t understand is dancing is a sport, and overlooked.
Over the years, I have realized that these well known professionals lacked important knowledge with regards to body maintenance such as different types of stretching.
The purpose of the workshop I’ve designed is to give the proper tools and information to allow dancers from all over the world, to use their craft and educate them on how to keep their body intact hence, preventing injuries.
My workshop showcases dancers on having a full range of motion in one’s sport without pain or strain. Tools to help maintain their shine preventing injuries while promoting longevity.It targets all dancers but focuses on younger demographic as it is easier to learn good habits at a young age.
There are many workshops available on how to become a better dancer but none on body maintenance. The irony is that the dancers will extort their bodies for performance, failing to realize that in the end, the body is their lifelong vehicle.
