This four (4) workshop series, each lasting four (4) hours, invites you to develop a comprehensive view of your training needs, from the perspective of the dancer as an athlete or professional athlete. The goal is to provide you with the tools to structure the physical experience of your profession and to harness the stressors of your life, both personal and professional, for your performance.
Alternating between theoretical demonstrations and practical experiments that encourage discussion and value errors as sources of learning, the training will lead you to establish a training culture capable of meeting athletic requirements and taking into account planning, periodicity, recovery, and regeneration related to the stresses associated with your dance practice.
You will learn to identify and quantify your stressors (mechanical, emotional, mental). You will then be led to create a strategic and structured training plan, both in the long term (annual) by setting S.M.A.R.T.E.S.T. goals (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, Time-bound, Elastic, anchored in Sensation, and Trustworthy – therefore reproducible), and in the short term through the outline of weekly plans and daily routines. This unique, meticulous, and progressive planning approach includes identifying obstacles to your training, an essential step to anticipate potential challenges and prepare in advance solutions to overcome them.
- Acquire notions, methods and tools to plan, develop and adopt new training methods (annual, weekly and daily) aimed at optimizing your dance practice.
- Identify and quantify stressors, then develop strategies to better manage them and use them to improve performance.
- Develop new skills in athletic conditioning, mental preparation and recovery.
