Assessing and improving core strength (Instructor’s session)
Over many years of training, dancers can easily develop areas of overuse and areas of weakness in the body which can affect performance and increase risk for injury. In this seminar, we use our popular “5-6-7-8 Method” to assess the most important area of the body as it relates to dance performance. Learn ways to assess core strength, along with exercises to increase strength for prevention of injury to all parts of the body and boost dance performance.
