This course is aimed at Pilates practitioners and other health professionals currently teaching conditioning exercises to dancers. A series of theoretical and practical workshops will expand the selection of teaching content and strategies to enhance conditioning for dancers. The course will be delivered in four modules, each module will approach the conditioning of dancers from a different but complimentary perspective.
The relationship between body conditioning exercises, the Pilates method principles and fundamentals of dance movement technique will be explored and linked in each module of the course.
Each module is linked through the CORE approach; ‘teach the body in front of you’, that in turn aims to foster and refine the participant’s skills to manipulate, innovate and individualise conditioning exercises.
Module 1 – FOCUS
The FOCUS module highlights the practice of conditioning exercises that support dances in their art practice. The short course will include select movement content and teaching methodologies for conditioning exercises.
This short course will be open for registrations in late November 2017.
