SPINE Strategies Online Workshop

You will experience these strategies yourself, implement them into a class situation and then discuss and get feedback on:

  • Are you looking for effective ways to teach students’ movement quickly and prevent injuries?
  • Do you want to get at the heart of a movement issue and empower your students to self-direct?
  • Are you open to the idea that there are new models for the whole body to help students hone movement more quickly and with less frustration?

The SPINE strategies online workshop will address these questions and more. In four weeks you will learn three of the five SPINE strategies and work closely with the creator of this new progressive method for 21st century dancers

  • Stretch roads: a strategy to stabilize and give students the ability to expand and co-ordinate bodily awareness
  • Pressing Flair: a strategy to unlock the power of an individual’s bodily architecture
