Welcome Devin McCoy to the FlowMotion team!  Soon we’ll have her Bio posted so you can read all about Devin’s experience growing up dancing & teaching in Bishop, as well as her accomplishments in the art.  In between working as the Fitness Director at the Double Eagle and taking care of her new baby, she’ll be offering the following classes:

 

Creative Movement        Ages 3-7        Saturdays 1:00pm
This is the perfect class for your young dancers. We focus on creative movement which builds on the necessary gross motor skills needed for primary dance instruction. We use fun, upbeat music to learn basic skills like hopping, skipping, jumping, galloping, and balance coordination. Students will engage in dramatic music movement and learn introductory ballet steps. These include plies, tendu, releve, arabesque, the five positions of the feet, and other introductory dance steps. Creative movement increases mental and physical development and creativity.  Dress code: Black Leotard, pink tights, ballet shoes, elastic skirts (optional), and hair pulled back off of face.

Ballet                  Age 7+                Saturdays 2:00pm
Ballet is the backbone to all forms of dance and is a must for the serious dancer. Dancers will learn classical ballet positions and technique. Serious instruction, with heavy emphasis on technique begins around the age of eight. Barre exercises are of primary concern in the early stages of training so dancers become aware of their center (balance). Dancers eventually work into centre floor exercises and learn classical steps and movements. Dancers will improve their choreography and performance skills.  Dress code:  Black leotard, pink tights, ballet shoes, skirts (optional), and hair pulled back off of face.

Jazz/Hip Hop        Ages 7-12               Saturdays 4:00pm
                                Ages 13+               Saturdays 5:00pm

Jazz lays the groundwork for technique in upbeat dancing. Students will learn a variety of dance combinations, jumps and turns. This class is a must for students wanting to learn the fundamentals of classic jazz technique. The music selection ranges from popular top 40 hits of various decades combined with Hip Hop. Dancers will Learn the latest new moves like seen on MTV, current music videos, and L.A.’s coolest street style dance. Hip-Hop is the newest trend in dance. Students will learn what it takes to make basic dance moves look hip and funky as they move to upbeat techno mixes with strong base.  Dress code: Comfortable pants (jazz pants, or warm-ups), dance Sneakers (NO STREET SHOES), and hair pulled back off of face.

 

Signing up for Class

We’ve changed the format a bit this year.  Classes will be on-going.  This means that instead of paying for a session of classes with set dates, classes will be every Saturday and you can pay per class ($15) or with an “electronic punch card” through our online system (5 classes = $68, 10 classes = $125).  You can also sign up in advance for as many or as few as you like.  You can login to the system at anytime to sign up or remove your child from class.  Any class cancellations will be posted online and on the facebook page.  When you come to class at the studio, please make sure to physically sign-in each time.  Don’t hesitate to email, text, or call with questions!  Also, if you just don’t do the computer, just get in touch to sign up and you can bring a check to the studio.  

 

To sign your child up for class, click the blue “Sign up for a class” link at the top left of this page.  Make sure to select the correct date/s (we’ll begin Oc.1st).

Back & Joint Therapy

back_pain_700HEALING THROUGH MOVEMENT

Back and joint pain sufferers often experience a Catch-22—movement is essential to healing, but movement hurts; it is easy to get stuck in a pain, fear of movement cycle. In your Back & Joint Therapy session you will learn gentle safe movements that can break the cycle, help you recover and prevent future re-injury.  This includes spinal and joint stabilization, optimal biomechanics in movement, and improved proprioception and awareness.
