Happy New Year!
Art Intercepts is a monthly column brought to you by dance artist, educator, and writer Lauren Warnecke (that’s me!). Nichelle and I were discussing the schedule for this year and she brought to my attention the many goals and questions that DA readers have submitted to kick off 2011.
I’m taking some of these“dancesolutions” head on this year. You have expressed a desire to improve your technique, avoid injury, and increase flexibility. Those of you who have visited my column before know that these topics are right up my alley! Over the next four months, look for tips and solutions to help YOU achieve your goals this year! Here’s a sneak peek at what’s in store:
“The stem of aplomb” explores proper placement, posture, alignment and the life source of dance: the spine!
“Knees, please” takes a look at common knee injuries and practical tips to prevent them.
“Look mom, no hands!” The science of standing up; best practices for better balance.
“Achilles Heel” introduces you to one of the most infamous body parts in dance.
