About the workshop
As Dancers, we have the tendency to feel invincible, jump, spin, roll, stretch, hour after hour, day after day, without any thought for tomorrow, without thinking about what happens to our body, until one day we get injured. Then, a shift in thinking is happening. Only then will we begin to calculate our steps and perhaps start to take care of our body – our tool. As a dancer being in this field for many years, and due to many injuries I’ve experienced, I was constantly seeking to find answers and ways of how to handle my body, and then to help others. I developed a technique that allows to move and dance freely, with no limits and yet much healthier. My body is over-flexible since I was born, with a tendency to fall apart quickly. I always felt like I needed to hold on to something or to lean on (whether it’s an air, floor, dance partner etc.). From all of my experiences as a dancer and a therapist who studied the human’s anatomy, I started to form a technique that bases on my knowledge in ballet, floorwork, release technique, contemporary dance, improvisation, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Chi-kong and anatomical studies.
I called it the Anchors Technique.
