In dance classes as well as in my private practice I hear similar questions over and over again: How do I improve my turnout? What does it mean when my hip clunks in my battement? My newsletter/blog, Dancing Smart, will answer questions like these and more, that come from you the dancers and dance teachers who are professionals in our field. We can learn from each other.
I look forward to sharing the knowledge and expertise I have gathered over the years from being a dancer, teacher and neuromuscular educator. I’m so appreciative of being able to coach dancers to overcome physical and mental obstacles and stay on track to achieving their dreams.
This forum cannot replace an in-person consultation with a dance medicine specialist, but ideally will provide guidance in how to approach common complaints of dancers. Below is where you ask me your questions about anatomy, technique, and those “I wonder what it means when…” questions. I cannot answer every question personally, but will pull from the questions I receive and answer them under the Dancing Smart blog area.
