DANCE CONDITIONING

(Ages 8+)

Specialized Dance Conditioning program led by Ms Lauren Henry. She works privately with high level dancers, skaters, and gymnasts to help improve her students' anatomical structure and physicality required by their sport/art form. She helps them over come previous injuries as well as prevent future injuries. Ms Lauren has seen great results in her students ability to improve their range of turn out, flexibility, ankle mobility, strength in pointe work, shoulder and back placement, over all use of core strength, and injury recovery/prevention.
