Charlotte Wassell (UK)
Injury Prevention for Bellydancers
Suitable for everyone
Belly Dance is sometimes considered to be a “low impact” dance style, though in reality the intricate, complex and contrasting movements we perform can be very demanding of our bodies and brains.
Many dancers are non-professionals, often coming to dance class directly from a day working at the desk or sitting in a car. As a result, many of us suffer from knee problems, shoulder pain, back pain, and more.
In this workshop, Charlotte will be taking you through a series of self-assessments you can easily perform on yourself to discover any imbalances you may have in your body. She’ll share some Muscle Energy Techniques which work like magic to release muscles that may be in “spasm” and you will come away from the workshop with a short series of exercises designed personally for you to use as preparation for your dance practice.
Saturday 13.00-14.30 GMT
