Discover a fresh perspective to identify and engage correct muscular activation to fine-tune stability, balance, weight exchange and proper placement on multiple planes. Through a series of creative, nonconventional, exercises that utilize partner assistance, and implements, participants will awaken a new sense of anatomical awareness. Participants are asked to problem solve and investigate movement and concepts with imagination to change habitual thoughts and initiate new training methods to improve dance technique, develop the tools to self correct, and lessen the likelihood of injury.
