Dancing Anatomy Workshops are created to teach the musculoskeletal anatomy in a relatable, applicable way. Each workshop addresses a different topic and held in an intimate setting. Prior to each workshop, Ginger asks each participant to prepare specific questions or areas of interests within the subject, so she can address the needs of every participant.
The workshops are open to dancers, dance Educators, athletes, and anyone interested in learning more about kinesiology, and muscles in motion.
No prior knowledge of anatomy required!
