— Healthy Dancing Bodies – Group Warm Up

If you’d like to get your body moving and awake before class together with us, we’re offering these group warm ups where we’ll get our joints moving and our muscles ready for action.

Today Abeth will guide us through getting our bodies prepared to dance.  For her personally, keeping everything aligned and moving the way it should is essential to staying out of chronic pain and continuing to dance.  She’ll share some of her favourite daily movements, warmup moves and some alignment tips.

Understanding a bit of our body mechanics and how to take care of our precious bodies is fundamental for any activity. We want to be able to dance for a lifetime! So let’s take care of our beautiful instrument!
