Dance Less Stiff 

Unlock your ribs & spine to dance with more flow and agility

Kinesiology workshop with Coach Gabriel Shaw

hosted by Myles & Tessa

Want your WCS to look and feel
less rigid and robotic and more fluid and free?

Do you:

  • Think you look too robotic, blocky, or rigid when you watch yourself on video?
  • Already know you need to use more contrabody when you dance?
  • Want to be able to do body pulse, body rolls, and rib isolations better?
  • Think your torso feels stiff when dancing or you feel restricted in your back or ribs?
  • Regularly experience stiffness or soreness in your mid-back?

If so, it sounds like it's time to call in a professional...

so we (Myles & Tessa) are excited to bring you this new workshop:

Dance Less Stiff

workshop with Coach Gabriel Shaw

Practicing Kinesiologist (and fellow Westie!)

What's involved:

  • You'll learn physio exercises for core and back that are targeted for practical WCS movements
  • You'll earn how to safely access more danceable movement in your thoracic spine
  • You'll build strength in muscles that often get overlooked or underestimated in WCS
  • You'll learn specific mobility exercises to warm up or ease stiffness after dance

How this workshop can help your WCS

In this 90 minute active virtual workshop, 

Coach Gabriel guides you through exercises to:

Look less stiff

  • Free up your contrabody movement to look more natural and relaxed while dancing
  • Gain strength/mobility for body rolls, isolations, and groove
  • Carry better posture without looking blocky like a soldier

Feel less stiff

  • Improve range of motion and access more fluid movement
  • Resolve mid-back tightness or soreness in dance and life
  • Increase strength in core & spinal muscles for speed & agility

Sneak Preview

We (Myles & Tessa) have collaborated with Coach Gabriel to produce a special workshop addressing the thoracic spine mobility issues that Westies struggle with both on and off the floor, and providing the conditioning you need to improve your contrabody movement and torso freedom!

Here is a short preview of an exercise Gabriel teaches to help improve these twisting muscles you'll use everywhere in your dance.
