Carolena Nericcio, Director of American Tribal Style® Dance, and Deb Rubin, Creator of Dance Therapeutics, join forces to bring you this 13-class Dance Therapeutics series geared specifically to your ATS® body and dance needs. ATS® movement vocabulary is broken down through the lens of Dance Therapeutics and warm-up sequences are given to prepare your body for the specific aspects of ATS® covered in each class. Learn how to unlock your body, improve your dance, and transform your life. Dance Therapeutics mat practices are led by Deb and ATS® lead-and-follow dance sections are led by Carolena and/or members of Fat Chance Belly Dance®.
First of its kind! Learn the roadmap to understanding your dancing body. Go beyond just learning origin and insertion points and function of individual muscles; that only gives a limited picture. This course brings you a more accurate and comprehensive exploration of the human body in motion, through the integrated, whole body patterning of the myofascial system. This groundbreaking course explores the belly dancing body and the Yogini body through the lens of fascia. The course includes an introduction to fascia (what it is, what it does in the body, and why it is crucial for dancers and movers to know about) and a thorough breakdown of the anatomy trains (myofascial meridians of the body) as mapped by Tom Myers. Each class video is broken down into 3 segments: Anatomy lecture with a visual handout link, the direct application into your moving body through Yoga asana, and, in part 3, direct application to belly dance movement vocabulary in a dancing section of basic belly dance technique and combos. In this way, you will learn a deeply embodied and practical approach to understanding your own body in motion along with tools to improve your self-care.
All dance and yoga levels welcome.
Integrative Anatomy for Dancers is a course complement for all of Deb Rubin's Dance Therapeutics LIVE trainings
and is a requirement for certification in Dance Therapeutics Level 1.
