Workshop Description

"What is the experience of movement in the health, wellness, and preparation context? How do we adapt to the growing physical and educational demands of dance?"

Your DANCE|PREHAB workshops are structured around creating a movement experience for your dancers to emphasize thought processes, sensations, and ultimately, application of concepts and ideas. For us, educating the next generation of movers, educators, and artists extends beyond information itself.

Although we have several movement experience options, every workshop process begins with a conversation with you in order to create and curate the best learning space and experience for your dancers and movers. Whether it's a studio environment, in college or academia, or educators and teachers, every context is inherently a little different. We strive to collaboratively meet your needs in your learning.

"WORKSHOPPING YOUR WARM-UP"
PREPARATION AS SELF CARE

“What is your 15 minute warm up?” As physical therapists and educators, we seldom do find that young dancers sufficiently prepare themselves for their movement demands. Through this workshop, we reframe the experience and process of warming up as a creative process can help to promote improved preparation habits for young dancers.

"CORE STRENGTH FOR WHAT?"
BEYOND PLANKS AND CRUNCHES

"Core Strength for What?" is a step further than your typical "learn-these-core-exercises" workshop. In this movement experience we reframe and redefine "core stability" in the context of performance, training, and the actual demands that dancers have to face. Instead of perpetuating the language and narrative of "weak cores" we guide dancers to access what is available to them.

"DANCE|PREHAB FUNDAMENTALS"
BUILDING HUMAN FOUNDATIONS

DANCE|PREHAB Movement Fundamentals is a movement program that is curated from our experiences working with young dancers in physical therapy. Before we are dancers, we are human, and the more we work with young dancers, the more we see the need for solid human foundations and movement education - squat, hinge, push, pull, and jump.

The purpose of our time together is to give dancers an avenue to connect and develop strong human movement foundations, along with gamification, play, and fun!
