MODULE 2 FORM

26, 27 & 28 May, 2017

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.

Course pre-requisites

  • 2 years practical teaching experience of the Pilates method
  • Currently working with a client base that includes dancers
  • Personal or professional dance experience preferable but not essential.
  • Experience in dance education preferable but not essential.
  • Physiotherapists with Pilates/other exercise based teaching experience

Course Structure

The course is divided into four modules which will be delivered across intensive weekends.  The modules will be spaced across a 12-month period. It is preferable for participants to complete the four modules but not required, however, the completion of Module 1 is a pre-requisite for engagement in any of the other 3 modules. Each module will approach conditioning dancers from a different but complimentary perspective.

 

MODULE 2 – FORM

Form is central to efficient sustainable movements and safe dance practice. The FORM module investigates the relationship between dance technique and conditioning exercises. 

Active discussion, exercise and demonstration will explore fundamental dance steps, elements of movement technique, efficient alignment, influential movement skills, and rhythmic breathing techniques that underpin and link dance steps.  Participants will develop and practice specific skills to assist dancers in developing their optimal FORM to enhance dance specific strength and endurance. The physical interplay between dance studio practice and conditioning exercise content will be examined.

Safe dance practice methods will be linked to problem solving as it relates to dance technique issues and the use of conditioning exercises to assist remediation and healthy progress.

Delivery by Noelle Shader and Paula Baird Colt will incorporate their combined years of experience in assisting professional dancers in ongoing development of dance technique and safe dance practice.
