I am going to be working with dancers LIVE! (online) starting May 15th (once a week for an hour or so) for 7 weeks. You should warm-up prior because every workshop is about pirouettes the entire time.
Summer intensives, competitions, performances, and fall classes will be here before you know it. Even partnering requires some solid pirouettes!
Many dancers struggle with fear of turning or falling out, confidence, inconsistently clean turns, and choking on stage. AGH!
The secret is PRACTICE and a proper foundation. I have seen a lot of pirouettes at competitions that are many, many, many rotations BUT sloppy. You wouldn't really know what sloppy is unless you know the ins and outs of how they actually work and should look. Judges and teachers, and classmates, are watching. Annoying... I know. So much pressure which does not help at all.
Can you join me LIVE! online for just $22 a session? I will be doing Q & A sessions after each one-hour workshop. Recordings will be available for those that miss or can't make it.
You can see all the workshops here and register through Eventbrite.
This is a great supplement to my online pre-recorded pirouettes course. I encourage you to join me if you still aren't nailing those turns. You can grab one or both of my trainings (recorded or live)!
The time to work on your pirouettes is right now. Then you can look back in a couple of months and be glad you started when you did. Spots are limited for each session. I hope to see you there.
