Join us live for Pilates Mat Class for Dancers with Emma Fitzsimmons Tuesdays 2-3:15pm EDT
About this class:
Class incorporates dance, somatic practices, and strength training. These approaches are used to work with a range of bodies. We use props in-conjunction with Pilates exercises to open and release tightness that might inhibit movement. We organize our alignment through each exercise creating balance between strength, flexibility, and coordination.
What you need for class:
A yoga mat would be nice, especially for those with more sensitive bones, but not necessary. Have on hand: a 2-3 lb weight or water bottle, a pillow, and something akin to a glider (washcloth for wooden floors and paper or paper plate for carpet floors). We will decide which props exactly to use at the start of class. If you're choosing to have your camera on, please direct your camera towards your mat setup so Emma can view your work and offer guidance.
