Drills and Doughnuts
How regular dancers can incorporate practice in their busy lives.
This workshop is for regular, everyday dancers who have non-dance jobs, families, and occasionally eat doughnuts before heading to dance class. We will learn ways to build strength, stamina, and flexibility as well as improve technique through Bellydance drills that can be incorporated into your busy schedule. If you are an ATS ®dancer, the drills will also help even out strength differences between the muscles on your right (ATS ® dominant) and left side. Lisa will also teach science-based strategies for maintaining motivation, sustaining habits and using “cues” in in your everyday routine to help these new strategies become second nature.
