“Deborah’s Vogel’s Essential Anatomy Multimedia Course is absolutely essential for every dance teacher wishing to optimize their teaching! The course is composed of 10 video lectures with corresponding lecture notes and study guides making it easy for a busy studio owner/mom to find time to learn more about anatomy. Ms. Vogel explains basic anatomy from a dance perspective and provides exercises on how to gain more stregth and flexibility for demanding dance movements. Information regarding Osgood Schlatter’s disease has proven particularly relevant as I am currently working with a student suffering from that disease. Her teaching tips at the end of course are incredibly helpful and I will be sharing them with my faculty at our next meeting. Thank you Deborah for creating this course for dance teachers! Kimberly
