For Dancers
with Bill Hedberg
2 hours minutes
Learn how the Shen Tao Approach can deepen your practice of classical and contemporary dance. Each two or three hour class is organized around a specific technical or movement principle. An emphasis is placed on opening blocked musculature, coordinating joint function, strengthening muscle tissue, and tractioning joints. By deepening your experiential understanding of these principles, you will learn the art of applying them to the process of rehearsal and stage performance.

Movement Lab
with Bill Hedberg
2 hours minutes
Our Movement Lab classes begin with the question, "How can we help?" Each student's input helps formulate the topics and structure of each class (i.e. movement principles, muscle groups, etc.). The class progresses gradually in its tempo, from a centering practice at the beginning, to sections for opening tight and restricted muscles, coordination challenges, and strength building. Each class finishes with hanging stretches on our unique Shen Tao Ladders.
