Many dance teachers are concerned at the safety of their students who are working into the extreme positions require by some current choreography. They want to keep their students safe, yet do not want to hold their dancers back from suceeding in this ever competative world. While some young dancers struggle with their range constantly, others have excessive natural range, and will often perform “tricks” that make most adults squirm. How do you train this extreme mobility safely?
During this two day flexibility Intensive teacher training course you will learn answers to the following questions, and more:
- What may 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?
- In students who have amazing range, how do I ensure they stay safe?
- How do you work into deep back extensions without risk of stress fractures or spondylolisthesis?
