Dance Workshops


We are available for dance education workshops for your group of dancers. We can deliver a wide range of topics to various ages and even teacher focused training. All workshops are fun, inclusive, practicable and based on the latest evidence based research. We hope that dancers leave our workshops feeling empowered about their body and it's capabilities. If you are Brisbane or South East Queensland based, we are able to come to your studio. Alternatively, we can offer our workshops remotely.

Safe Flexibility 

Should I stretch before or after class? How long should I hold my stretches for? Which is better, static or active stretches? Why am I feeling pins and needles when I stretch? 

We explore all of these commonly asked questions and more within this workshop. We delve into the most recent research into safe and effective stretching and provide practical ways to implement this into your dance routine. Throughout the workshop we will also discuss how to manage hypermobility and what that means for your stretching routine. We are able to help you with your specific flexibility issues and breakdown where restrictions may be coming from.
