Teachers' Workshop

Led by Mary Carbonara, with Guest teachers include Erik Wagner (Ballet) and James Graham (Gaga) who will offer their own perspectives respective of their dance discipline.
A two-day workshop for teachers and aspiring teachers working with teens and adults. The focus will be on class construction - how to put together a class that includes technique, conditioning and performance skills. 

This workshop is intended to be one of mutual sharing in a laboratory setting: teachers are encouraged to try things out, share what has been successful for them, pose questions to the group and gain peer mentoring over the course of the two days. We will address various aspects of content like: healthy alignment, turn-out, range of motion, stretching and strengthening, vocabulary, expression, music, etc. We will also address teaching skills like: language, how to demonstrate, how to use/not use the mirror, how to give a correction, how to modify for different bodies and abilities, how to guide your students to work with certain injuries, etc.


Pre-registration required. $150 before June 1; $175 if paid on or after June 1.  No teaching experience is required. Participants should have an intermediate level of dance training (any style) or better.



Dates TBA

Cost:  $25 (at the door)
