Better Posture Better Dance  Workshop

Re-set and reinforce your upper spine and shoulders for less pain and more confident movement.

Hosted by Myles & Tessa

Free up your neck & shoulders to
improve your dance... and daily life!

  • Are you sick of rounded shoulders?
  • Do your upper back or arms feel tired/tense/tight at the end of the day?
  • Do you receive complaints about your stiff frame or feeling too heavy/strong?
  • Does your dancing feel robotic or restricted?

If so, you may need posture conditioning to level up your dance!

All of the above issues are related to poor posture.

Posture is about more than standing proud. It’s about how you carry your head and shoulders through all positions and movements.

Conditioning your posture not only fixes these issues, but can benefit so many other aspects of our health and performance. Posture is one of those things that will only improve if you take action, and will deteriorate if you don’t.

Deeper issues like this call for a professional who specializes in them, so we (Myles & Tessa) are excited to bring you this new workshop:

Better Posture Better Dance

with Coach Gabriel Shaw

Practicing Kinesiologist (and fellow Westie!)
