–  Ballet
–  Tai Chi
–  Qigong
–  Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping
–  Modern/contemporary dance
–  Latin and smooth ballroom dances
–  Jazz and African dance
–  E
lements from Anne Green Gilbert’s seminal work on movement and neurological
development.

The restorative nature of Rejuvenating Dance makes it ideal for teachers, nurses and other caregivers who daily experience a high level of stress. The gentle movement system is also ideal for persons coping with chronic illness.

The movements may be performed in a space as small as 5 ’X 5’making it possible to practice at home or while traveling.

What can I expect at a Rejuvenating Dance Session?

   ◊ Pre-warm-up

Ease into the session with gentle tapping of important acupuncture points to energize. The tapping also stimulates skin, muscles and nerve endings. In addition to tapping, Rejuvenating dance exercises the facial and eye muscles. 

 

 Tapping is followed by flowing movements to build energy and to lead the body into relaxation

◊ The Warm-up

Traditional ballet movements infused with Tai Chi are performed with the support of ballet barres. Participants work to improve spinal alignment, moving with ease, building balance, stretching, as well as building leg and core strength.

 ◊ Center Dancing

Following the s the warm-up the session moves to the center of the room. Simple aerobic movements from ballroom, folk, jazz, musical comedy and world dance forms to add enjoyment. This section of the class offers opportunities for personal expression, spontaneity, and creativity.

◊ Improvisation

Improvisation is an important part of the Rejuvenating Dance session providing participants an opportunity to listen to the body, explore being spontaneous, to learn develop multiple solutions to movement exercises and to build nonverbal communication skills.

    ◊ Cool down

Yoga stretches are used to release any remaining tension fully preparing participants to relax. Utilizing knowledge gained from Magnetic Brain Imaging (MRI) each session will conclude with the introductions to different methods of relaxing the mind and body.

What if I can’t perform all the movements?

The instructor will modify movements to meet individual needs. Some movements may be smaller, others sitting in a chair or holding onto the ballet barre. This a gentle system. Pushing endurance levels or past pain levels is not part of this movement system. Listening to the needs of our clients is where we begin and end our sessions. 

Listening to clients allows me to meet their needs

 

What can I expect to gain from this workout? 

The stress of life affects our body as well as our emotions. When we experience a period of depression, prolonged illness, intense stress or other heavy feelings, the alignment of the spine is acutely affected. When the difficult period passes, we are left with the physical habit of our spinal alignment.  We have a choice in the matter. We can take action to remember what it feels like to stand tall with an open heart ready to engage life.  

What should I wear to a session?

 The suggested attire is dark-colored fitted capris or full-length yoga leggings made of durable stretching material. A long fitted top that stays in place no matter what position you are in is ideal. A support bra for full busted women is recommended. Socks are too slippery, so please go barefooted or wear a pair of ballet slippers.  The object is to be comfortable moving.
