All Bodies Dance – Balance!™
Similar in approach to personal style and expression as ABD! All Bodies Dance-Balance!™ holds an even more specific focus on building balance and mobility skills in a dance context. Each and every element of the class is purpose driven to teach you about creative approaches to balance in a dance context. Whether it is in our mobility warm up, traveling through space with quick directional changes, shifting our weight in many directions or standing with elegant control on one leg with our eyes closed, everything we do is about building conscious physical and environmental awareness both in part and in the body as a whole as well as practicing gait variation, The lovely part is that dance naturally lends itself to this kind of purpose driven class. Early skill building is key to this kind of training. Ballroom, Zumba, Salsa, Nia are all great, but THERE IS NO OTHER DANCE CLASS being offered anywhere at this time, that teaches balance in a creative dance frame work by someone who is both a professional dance educator and a Balance & Mobility Specialist.
“Marilyn is a gifted and inspirational teacher. Her classes are so fun and such a fantastic release from whatever binds you! Once you experience Marilyn you will just want more and more… She gets you in your body, which then frees you of all your constraints…you need to experience her to get what that means!
So go…experience that no matter what age, fitness level, movement capability you can get that body moving.”
