A dancer's worst nightmare...
I created BC Artistry with the intention of bridging the gap
between dance technique and body & movement sciences for young dancers ,
helping to support the safe enhancement of dancer's abilties.
BCA's Approach to Dance Training
Understanding your instrument:
the role of science in your dance education
Have you ever played an instrument?
I can remember teachers guiding me to learn about each part of an instrument,
what it did, and how parts worked together to create music before I was ever guided on how to play a single note.
I had to understand how making music was possible and how to care for my instrument so that it would continue to create desired sounds. A lot of understanding and management goes into the creation of beautiful music and the development of artistry.
As a dancer, your body is your instrument!
Do you know all the parts that are involved in your movement, how they work together to make you dance, and how to care for them? Your bones and muscles are what make it possible to perform elaborate and complex movement patterns, like those found in dance. Without proper understanding of each of our moving parts, what they do to help us move, how they work in our technique, and how to properly care for them, how will we be able to consistently create
and perform desired movements?
Understanding of the body and movement
sciences that support your dance technique is
a vital part of improving dance abilities and
preventing injuries. BC Artistry helps design
dance education programs to specifically guide
you in developing your understanding of your
instrument while you learn about and improve your
dance technique. Find success in your future dance
performances through dance education and science.
