Q&A with Khyle Eccles

We spoke to Dance Conditioning teacher Khyle Eccles about his class.

What can we expect from your class?
Expect a full physical work out with the theory and information to back it up! Each person is different but we will be looking to identify some physical limits, address any current weaknesses, and then problem solve the solution. All classes work on a personal best mentality - if you’re working hard for you, you’re winning!

Why do you think fitness in dance is so important?
Dancers are athletes, and therefore should be aware of their athletic ability away from aesthetic. It’s really easy to get caught up in making it look right, and rigorously pushing the art, but you should be fit enough to sustain that art for more than one class or rehearsal...

How will this class improve my dancing?
This class will give you a deeper awareness of your training away from technique class, and help support your global physical development; regardless of style. They say knowledge is power, but physical power is the combination of strength and speed… so we’ll look at that too!

What do you love most about the class you teach? 
Its energetic, up-beat, and fun (physically and mentally tiring too). I love helping dancers improve their physical output to support their technical and aesthetic goals. It’s also really great to Help someone to find a new way of moving, or to understand a new training principle, or to achieve a new personal best.
