TBA Date and Time
Open to all individuals who want to learn more about how their body works efficiently. Although we will be looking at it from a dance and Pilates perspective you do not need to be a dancer or Pilates Addict to join us!
We will tape our muscles on Herman (the skeleton) and then ourselves while learning the names of the bones, muscles, joints, connective tissues, and arthrokinematics of the joints. We will learn proper biomechanics and specific neuromuscular conditioning exercises to change our less than efficient usages. NO TESTS JUST UNCOVERING THE MYSTERY OF YOUR BODY!
