Level 2 Intensives

For Dance Teachers and Health Professionals

The Level 2 Intensive Workshops allow you to focus and grow in each specific area of dance technique. Each one is delivered as a one or two day workshop, that can be taken for your area of interest. The classes typically run from 9am to 5pm, or 9am - 4pm for the two day workshops, which allows each area to be explored in greater detail and provides age appropriate progressions, modifications for injury & personal experience.

LEVEL 2 INTENSIVES - COURSE OUTLINES

 

A New Approach to Core Stability

By far one of the major problem areas that we see as therapists working with dancers, athletes, office workers and weekend warriors alike is in the the area of “Core Stability.” The issues we see are two-fold. On one hand, very few people have good natural core control and dynamic stability of the spine. Lack of true stability of the spine leads to over compensation by other structures which leads to many of the injuries that we see in the spine. This is especially true for young dancers who are training specific movements over and over again.

On the other hand, many dancers, athletes and other individuals who have been involved in Personal Training, Physio or Pilates classes are performing “core” exercises that may focus too much on control or restricting movement by bracing. Often we discover that the very exercises that individuals are using to try and better themselves are actually part of the problem. Over recruitment of muscles can cause just as many, if not more issues, than weakness in muscles, and this often happens when individuals have been formally taught how to move. In addition, many people perform their stability exercises lying on their back, which does not prepare them for the demands of sitting, standing and dancing!

What is needed is a radical rethink of what ‘core stability’ actually is, and a new approach to training stability in dancers which is built up over the years. When addressing core stability when there is an issue with mobility or pain in older dancers, we need to make a careful assessment of each individuals movement strategies, isolate their specific weaknesses and a develop a carefully considered retraining program to retrain optimal stability.

This full day intensive teacher training course builds on the knowledge gained in Level 1 and looks at developing strategies for facilitating true core sytability in all ages and abilities. We include lots of practical tips and ways of helping every dancer, from your tiny tots to your Silver Swans!

What is Core Stability?

How we approach the training of the core has evolved drastically over the last 10 years to include a much more holistic approach. Recent focuses include how to incorporate breath into our training of the core to subtly activate muscles like the pelvic floor and transverse abdominus in an more effective way.

Core training does not focus solely on training the abdominal muscles but must look at the interconnected muscular contractions of small stabilisers throughout the body to create their true stability rather than brute strength. The new approach looks at utilising the body’s natural ability to stabilise itself and how exercises can be done to further reinforce that mechanism whilst also raising kinaesthetic awareness.

The Anatomy of Core Stability

Our program “A New Approach to Core Stability” is a complete training program that targets the entire body. This course includes:

  • An in-depth look at the true functional anatomy of core stability
  • The Fascial Lines that affect core stability
  • The importance of breath and its relationship to the core
  • The interrelatedness of all the muscles of the trunk
  • The deepest stabilising muscles of the spine, and how to tell if they are effectively working
  • A wide range of exercises that target the larger and smaller muscles that help to stabilise the pelvis, spine and limbs
  • A look into recent back pain research and simple strategies for relieving common back pain
  • Explanations for dance teachers on how to easily involve these exercises into students’ warm-up and strengthening routines

What you will gain from this course:

  • An understanding of the interconnected structures and anatomy that make up the body’s core
  • The confidence to accurately assess the strengths and weaknesses in your students’ core stability in all dimensions
  • Insight into the variety common core weaknesses and prescriptive exercises to help strengthen these instabilities
  • A handbook and access to a wide range of video material to refresh your knowledge

The course is broken down into stages with each stage comprised of different exercise assessments, allowing the dancer and teacher to gauge at which level they currently stand. Each stage becomes incrementally harder to involve more elements and dynamic movement of the spine.

Please keep in mind that this is a Level 2 course, and builds on the content covered in the Level 1 Teacher Training.

Training Turnout in Tiny Dancers

Many teachers struggle with hip pain and injuries in their adolescent dancers, but few realise how much of this stems from the training that children had in their early years. This course delves into the delicate art of training turnout in tiny dancers, through to adolescents. In conjunction with early childhood Master Teacher Beverly Spell, we explore safe ways to develop both range and control in young hips, preparing them for higher level work in the future, while having fun with creative play in the classroom. All good learning is laid down in layers; we explore what concepts need to be introduced at what ages and how to practice this in class.

Some students seem blessed with lots of range but lack the ability to control it, while others constantly struggle with the mobility of their hips. This makes training a group of students a constant challenge. In this systematic and comprehensive approach to training turnout in young artists, Lisa and Beverly provide dance teachers with direct techniques to use in class to safely develop optimal range and control of motion in all dance students. This program begins by establishing strength and control in parallel, before adding on the control of rotation, which is hugely important in the long term health of dancers’ hips. Using elements of fun and creative play to bring scientific and detailed training programs into dance schools is a unique and effective way to help thousands of young students worldwide.

We believe that at younger ages, children should be playing and exploring the full movement of their bodies. Pushing them into ballet class at a young age and not letting them do anything else is a way to diminish all natural movement and lower their body awareness. Climbing trees and swimming, for example, are great ways for them to train the diagonal fascial lines that run through their body which will help them later in their careers once they start performing more dynamic movements.

During this course, we aim to train teachers to work with their tiny dancers by exploring:

  • Visualisation and pretend play
  • The physical development of young students
  • The importance of crawling
  • Anatomical variations and other factors that may affect physicality
  • Safe stretches for young dancers

We then look at a 6 stage program designed for students aged 4-8 to gradually prepare them for the demands of dance training. This includes:

  • Encouraging natural development of core stability
  • Sustained balance on one leg
  • Awareness of rotation from the hip
  • Cross body patterning
  • Introduction of more formed ballet
  • Maintaining turnout through movement

This course is perfect for teachers who are looking to incorporate the right preparatory exercises into their tiny dancer classes to help them develop correctly and avoid injury in their hips.

Training Turnout in Tiny Dancers

Progressing onto pointe is one of the biggest rites of passage a young dancer faces, it is often very exciting. However, it is also very challenging, and the excitement of that shiny new pair of shoes is often quickly soured with the onset of pain and blisters. But it does not have to be this way! Given a slow and carful preparation, along with a detailed assessment of the dancer before pointe work is introduced, it can be one of the most amazing times, and open up a whole new world of possibilities in dance. 

Historically, pointe work can be tricky for some feet. While some may find it hard to fully rise over the block of the shoe, others may be dealing with excessive mobility within the major joints of the foot and find that they have very little control over their ankles. Since every dancer is different, the journey onto pointe is going to differ for every dancer. In addition, many women dance on pointe for most of their careers as ballet dancers so getting it right at the very beginning is crucial to ensure a long lasting career, and one that is injury free!

This two day workshop is designed to give you the most up-to-date advice in the industry to help you understand your students’ needs, analyze their differences, and them you the tools to help your students become the best dancer they can be.

Our Pointe Intensive is designed for both dance teachers and therapists who work with dancers!

Dance teachers often feel unsure of how to work with those students who don’t naturally have the facility for pointe work. However, these students often end up being put onto pointe anyway, despite not having the appropriate range or control, in order to keep up with the class. Some teachers send their students to be individually assessed by a therapist, however many therapists feel unqualified to conduct in-depth pre pointe assessment if they havenot  been explicitly trained to do so.

During this two day intensive dance teacher and health professional training course you will learn:

  • Details of the correct training and preparation for pointe work
  • How to complete a thorough pre-pointe assessment
  • Corrective exercises to achieve optimal alignment before commencing pointe work
  • Mobilisation techniques to safely improve range
  • How to choose the right pointe shoe based on the biomechanics of the foot
  • How to tailor the pointe shoe for a perfect fit
  • Good foundation pointe exercises that will give the student excellent basic pointe technique
  • How to prevent injuries on pointe
  • Answers to all of the common questions asked about starting en pointe

We know that getting onto pointe can be a race between some dancers and peer pressure can be high to stay at the same level. For this reason we include lots of tips to ensure that each student progresses as quickly as possible with the necessary strength and mobility. These include mobilising, massage, easy strengthening exercises. It may seem hard to get rid of bad habits in young dancers, but it is equally as hard to get rid of good habits!

Our Pointe Intensive is designed for both teachers and therapists!

Pointe Assessment Intensive Beginner Pointe

Day One:

9am – 11am: Preparation for pointe work, the Pre-Pointe Questionnaire and Parents Education

The first part of the course looks at how we can more effectively prepare young dancers and their parents for the process of preparing to go onto pointe. Adequate education well ahead of the final formal pointe screening will help avoid many broken hearts, as well as reducing the likelihood of injury.  We go through a simple questionnaire that helps ascertain the current status of each dancer in relation to their training and injuries. This will help identify whether the student has the history and current training in order to be suitable for pointe work and to give a good snap-shot in time of their current timetable. We will also start on the Pre-Pointe Assessment process, reviewing some assessment techniques discussed in the Level 1 course, with a special focus on the requirements for pointe. 

11:00am11:15am: Morning Break

11:15am – 1:00pm: Pre Pointe Assessment

Assessing the individual dancer thoroughly before going on pointe is absolutely paramount to sucess en pointe and is slowly becoming more commonplace in dance schools around the world. Having a clear system that allows you to accurately identify areas of weakness, tightness and instability in a dancer allows us to give them specific exercises that will help optimise their function. The assessment process explores simple screening tests that teachers can perform in the studio before allowing their students to go onto pointe. This may be done as individual private assessments, or in a group setting over time. Effective and efficient mobilisation techniques are also introduced to help improve common areas of restriction, such as pointe range, plié range and turnout range and control.

1:00pm – 2:00pm: Lunch

2:00pm – 4:00pm: Foot Assessment

In the afternoon of Day One we continue our assessment process, with special consideration of anatomical variances in foot type and foot shape. We discuss the pros and cons of having each type of foot and common difficulties that each foot type poses in relation to pointe work. We look at the various arches of the foot and the dynamic function of theses arches in ballet. Understanding foot shape is important when advising students on types of pointe shoes to buy when they are ready for pointe work.

Day Two

9am – 11am: Specific questions in relation to starting en pointe

There are so many urban myths around pointe work, and on the morning of the second day we spend time discussing several of these, along with the repeated common questions about starting en pointe, such as:

  • Can you go en pointe of you have flat feet?
  • Should students get an x-ray before starting en pointe?
  • Does pointe work cause bunions?
  • What are the best pointe shoes to use?
  • Should pointe work hurt?

11:00am – 11:15am: Morning Break

11:15am – 1:00pm: Pointe Shoe Fitting

In the later part of the morning we look at the ideal fitting of the pointe shoe, different options for different foot types, and ways of customising the shoe. Many questions arise around the topic of ribbon type, ribbon placement and the best way to ‘break in’ a pair of new pointe shoes. All too often, students place their ribbons in the wrong place on their pointe shoes, tie them too tight around their Achilles Tendon and break their shoes in a way that may cause it to fail faster than needed. Simple ideas can make a hiuge differnce in getting a perfectly fitted shoe, whether you are with the student at the fitting or not.  

1:00pm – 2:00pm: Lunch

2:00pm – 4:00pm:

We look at some preparatory exercises for students who are new to pointe to get the accustomed to the shoe and the workings of it. We focus on ankle stability when standing in pointe shoes, and effectively using the demi and  ¾ pointe, first in sitting and then at the barre. We stress to teachers the importance of working slowly through all of the prparatory stages, and making sure that strength is built through slow concentric and eccentric training for optimal control. We then progress to some basic beginner pointe exercises that build the foundation for a safe progression onto pointe. These exercises are suitable for even your most advanced dancers, and should be revisited regularly by all dancers en pointe. 

 Completing the 3 Day Level One Teacher Training is recommended prior to attending any of the Level Two Intensives. If you attend any of our Level Two workshops prior to attending Level One you will be recommended to sign up to our Level One Teacher Training Portal for three months prior to the workshop going ahead.

Flexibility Level 2 - Flexibility Intensive & How to Train Extreme Mobility Safely

The body of research & development around the art of flexibility, and especially the fascial system and its relationship to our mobility, continues to grow, however it seems to be a little behind the artistic ideals many dancers and gymnasts desire. Understanding the relevance of this new information to the dancer is essential for all students, teachers and health professionals, especially those working with elite athletes and performers. Many traditional stretches, and even many ‘Myofascial Release Techniques’ taught globally may actually be doing more harm than good.

Gone are the days of forcefully "releasing" fascia with deep foam roller work or massage techniques. The new work is far gentler, more effective, and less damaging to the tissues. However, this requires a unique, intelligent, multifactorial approach, with a deep understanding of human anatomy guiding its application.

  • What make makes one person tighter than the other?
  • Why can one dancer do the splits without stretching while others can’t, even when they try so hard?
  • Why do students sometimes feel even less flexible when they are stretching?
  • How do I help student get their leg higher in second when it just feels like it’s stuck in the socket?
  • How do I deal with a class full of students with different levels of flexibility?
  • How do I deal with students who suddenly lose flexibility when they go through a growth spurt?
  • What is neural tension, and how can I work safely with students with tight nerves?

Answers to all of these questions, and more, will be answered in this intensive teacher training workshop with Lisa Howell. Due to popular demand – the original one day workshop has been extended into our BRAND NEW 2 day Flexibility Intensive, which also explores how to train extreme mobility safely!

Aims of the course:

  • Increase the awareness of the multifactorial nature to flexibility training, that everyone is different, and may require different training techniques at different periods of time
  • Educate dance teachers and therapists that the traditional methods of pushing into restriction is often not the most effective way to improve, and in some cases may be counter productive
  • Explore safe way of assessing exactly where each individual is restricted in order to create the most effective program.
  • Learn safe ways of mobilising these restrictions to create more mobility.
  • Understand why these areas of tension build up in the first place, and how subtle changes to how we sit, stand and walk can make an enormous difference to our flexibility
  • Discover how to apply these training techniques to the extreme mobility demanded by many of todays performing artists
  • Help teachers manage the flexibility of adolescents safely through growth-spurts

Note: Please do not worry if you struggle with your own mobility! We will have several student models as well as the course presenter to demonstrate some of the higher level elements so you will not feel obliged to perform any movement that is not part of your normal repertoire. However, many teachers are delighted at just how much they effortlessly improve their mobility during the course!

Many traditional stretches and even many "Myofascial Release Techniques" may actually be doing more harm than good. Flexibility (or lack thereof) is very rarely contributed to muscle tension alone. We must look at each individual more carefully to understand the true cause of any restrictions in range of motion.  Factors like joint shape or position, neural tension, fascial tension, breath, postural habits and even emotion can all contribute to lack of flexibility in an individual. Once the true cause is identified, efficient and safe techniques can be used to rapidly, and safely, improve mobility.

This two day intensive workshop will change how you work with flexibility forever! 

 

What is covered:

Day One focusses on understanding the nature of flexibility, how to assess each individuals particular restrictions and the order of progression of which restrictions need be worked on for optimal efficiency and safety in flexibility gains. We explore the importance of the breath, how to work with ‘bone-on-bone’ restriction, the nervous system (on multiple levels), the fascial system and the influence of muscle tone on mobility. We explore how each of the components of flexibility can be worked with intelligently to create lasting change in flexibility. The exercises in this level are suitable for all attendees, and many teachers who have not moved well for years discover are surprised and delighted that  carefully chosen assessment and ‘treatment’ techniques can open up their range in a pain free way! Due to the subtlety and gentle nature of each of the releases, the work is suitable for almost all individuals. The very nature of the course is all about carefully analysing each restriction and unravelling it in a very specific order, with the least amount of effort, so there is no force involved at all. However, the number of teachers who end up delighted at the end of Day One is extraordinary, due to the fact that they can fold in half once more!

Day Two includes a revision of Day One – with a discussion of ways of including the various techniques and progressions in a class situation and we run a ‘real time’ mobilisation session to get everyone feeling great. The rest of the day is spent exploring how to use modifications and very specific sequences of exercises to train dancers, gymnasts, contortionists and martial artists into the extreme positions that they require for high level competition in the safest way possible. Safely improving and maintaining extreme range is highly dependent on subtle segmental stability of local stabilisers to control joint position, and understanding this can not only help performers achieve phenomenal range safely, but can also help extend their career potential, and live a pain free life following retirement from competing.

If you are struggling to find exercises to fit all students or feeling frustrated because you feel helpless with a particular student who just isn’t making progress, this course is for you! This workshop will help you assess your students in detail and be able to offer them effective techniques in a logical clear order to get them on the way to achieving THEIR optimal flexibility. It is also for teachers who are concerned at the extreme positions young dancers are wanting to work into, as it gives you safe guidelines on how to guide their development.

Pre Reading Ideas:

As this is a Level Two course, it is a great idea if you can explore some of the more readily available information that I have perviously published on flexibility. The following should give you some handy links to explore:

 

Understanding and Managing Hip Injuries in Dancers

Although chronic hip pain should never be a “normal thing” for young dancers, the reality is that many dancers all over the world are suffering from chronic hip pain with very little idea of what to do about it. Regular physical therapists and physiotherapists are often at a loss at what to do because of the complex nature of dance and can often only prescribe rest and recovery. We all know very well that this kind of news does not go down well at all with dancers, nor does it have a good outcome.

Hip pain and clicky hips come from a myriad of anatomical and technical faults, all of which must be identified and addressed.  If these fundamental issues are not addressed in detail, the hip injury will tend to reoccur and continue to impede the dancer’s progress.

This course is specifically designed for teachers and therapists as it offers a valuable insight into the true nature of hip injuries and how best to deal with them inside and outside of the classroom. it also empowers both teachers and physio’s to work on these elements with all students to help prevent the initial symptom from becoming a full blown injury.

The full day intensive course covers:

_MGL0082

  • Common dysfunctions such as labral tears and ‘clicky hips’
  • Corrective exercises that students can still work through while still resting and recovering
  • The early signs of injury on-set and the best ways to deal with these occurring in the dance student
  • The best conditioning exercises that can be implemented into a student’s strengthening program to maintain optimal muscle firing

So, what makes this course different from other courses?

Lisa has been a dancer and has been working intensively with dance students for the past 18 years. She has an outstanding understanding of the dancer’s body and the expectations and stresses that are upon it. She has had years on invaluable hands on experience and has discovered hundreds of tips and tricks that will help you solve all of your students’ hip problems that she will share with you.

Not only do you learn the basic principles of injury, assessment and rehabilitation but you will get real hands on work including taping skills, massage technique and manual manipulations for therapists. Guided by Lisa, you will be able to confidently identify basic underlying problems and areas of tension throughout the hips and the rest of the body.

Take your teaching and understanding of the dancer’s body to the next level and help your students get back to what they love doing!

Understanding and Managing Foot Injuries in Dancers

This two day course, designed for Dance Teachers and Health Professionals  addresses many of the common injuries that dancers experience and gives an extensive insight into how these injuries develop, giving particular emphasis on identifying the warning signs early.

Chronic stress and overload is the main cause underlying most foot and ankle injuries in dancers. Due to the repetitive nature of the exercises in dance classes these injuries can often creep up on the students and may be developing well before any symptoms are felt. If the subtle worry signs are not addressed, the student may develop full blown injury and be unable to dance for several weeks.

Foot stretches, and many traditional strengthening exercises do not restore the specific strength or range deficits that cause common foot injuries, and may actually create a further imbalance in the feet and ankles. Identifying and deliberating working on specific restrictions or deficits can result in much faster and longer lasting results.

In this course, we look at:

  • The anatomy of the foot
  • Common dance injuries and how they occur
  • Management of injuries in the classroom
  • The rehab process from injury
  • How physical therapy works and what to expect
  • Specific exercises that help target weak areas in the foot
  • Taping techniques to help offload sensitive areas

This course is not solely designed for dance teachers and is a great addition for physiotherapists, personal trainers and other health care professionals who want to work more closely with dancers. You will leave armed with many tools and techniques to help dancers suffering with all types of foot injuries, specifically:

  • Plantar Fascia Pain
  • Posterior Impingement
  • Os Trigonum
  • Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy
  • Achilles Tendinopathy
  • Sever's Disease
  • Stress Fractures
  • Bunions
  • “Shin Splits”

Especially in the pre-adolescent/adolescent student, it’s imperative to support the vulnerable structures in the foot and ankle. Since many changes are happening in the body during this time, attention needs to be given to certain strengthening exercises that will benefit the dancer throughout the length of their career. Some dancers, eager to get quick results, resort to using foot stretchers and other dangerous items in an attempt to get the feet they have always wanted. Not only do the foot stretchers fail to improve, strengthen and control the ankle they are also cause massive damage to the soft tissue structures in the foot. This often leads to injury and a reduced capacity to dance, rather than an improvement.

banditsBAND ITS

Band-ITS are the latest product in the array of tools available to dancers to assist with body strengthening and conditioning. They are two legs straps connected by a tensile piece of rubber tubing that adds resistance to all movements executed by the dancer. Working against resistance will improve the motor recruitment and therefore strength of the muscle of the movement trained.  If we repeat movements against resistance we can improve the connection through the pelvis and core to the legs, strengthen turnout and improve leg height and flexibility. These improvements will be felt immediately after the bands are removed.

This tool is completely user friendly and loads the dancer’s movement without putting the joints and muscles at risk. All class movements can be easily executed without needing to remove or change straps.

The Band-ITS workshop runs you through how to correctly use the device safely in your studio. The course teaches a graded program of exercises that you can use immediately with your students at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels. All the exercises are taken from a 1 hour Band ITS conditioning program which can be taught as an additional program in your studio.

The course will give you the confidence to:

  • Use Band ITS yourself
  • Safely implement the use of Band ITS in your studio as part of your class or conditioning program
  • Pick which exercises are going to be most beneficial for a wide range of students

This course is the best way to learn how to challenge your dancers safely and take their technique to the next level.  Click HERE to purchase the Band ITS kit!
