Upcoming October Events!

Lots of events coming up to share with you:  Stay tuned for a full report from the latest rules discussions too – just gotta get out of my pile of work first!

Sunday, October 4th: 

The Minnesota Dance Medicine Foundation (501c3 non-profit) will be hosting their next Ask the Experts session, “Optimizing Flexibility-Stretch this, Not that,” at the Cowles Center in Minneapolis on Sunday, October 4th from 4:30-5:30 PM.
We will examine the high level functional requirements of dancers and the different kinds of flexibility that can be utilized to more safely optimize performance. You are invited to learn by moving and/or observing.
We have never offered a flexibility training session like this before, as we will be examining safety of stretches, different kinds of stretching circuits, and ways to attain results by using a mixed approach instead of holding stretches or using extreme force.
