There are a few new and exciting classes to check out starting this month!
We have 2 new weekly Upside-Down Dance Classes with Lisa Orig happening at Ballet Hawaii (777 South Hotel Street Suite 101) starting September 11! See below for the schedule.
Also, our Kinesthetic Anatomy and Biomechanics Workshop premieres on September 8th! Hurry and purchase your spot because this opportunity is only one day out of the month!
This September’s Workshop features : “Turn out from your hips not your feet.”
The anatomy behind this common dance correction. We will learn to stabilize our Sacroiliac Joint and move our leg at our hip joint. This will prevent lower back pain, sciatica, hip and knee arthritis, and ankle sprains to name a few. Moreover, will will become stronger and more attractive movers with a greater sense of balance!
In each workshop 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 covered that day. We will learn proper biomechanics and specific neuromuscular conditioning exercises to change our less than efficient usages. This will prevent and heal injury. NO TESTS JUST UNCOVERING THE MYSTERY OF YOUR BODY!
