Antonette will lead a daily conditioning class aimed at warming up and preparing the mind and body for dance. Based on Stott Pilates these invigorating sessions will include the use of light weights, interval training and dynamic stretching to work on improving posture, increasing core strength and aerobic function.

This open level course complements technique classes providing an excellent way to start the day. As a professional dancer Antonette has practiced Pilates for over 12 years and now as a trained instructor she aims to help dancers develop their own body awareness to create a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels strong and moves with ease.

This course runs for 5 days, and the price quoted is for the full 5 days.
