This training of four (4) four-hour workshops invites you to develop an overall vision of your training needs, from the perspective of the dancer as an athlete or professional sportsperson. The aim is to provide you with the tools you need to structure the physical experience of your profession and put the stressors of your life, both personal and professional, at the service of your performance.

Alternating between theoretical demonstrations and practical experimentation, encouraging exchange and the valuing of mistakes as sources of learning, the training will lead you to put in place a training culture capable of meeting so-called athletic requirements and taking into account the planning, periodicity, recovery and regeneration due to the stresses associated with your dance practice.

You will learn to identify and quantify your stressors (mechanical, emotional, mental). You’ll then be able to plan your training strategically and in a structured way, both in the long term (annual) by setting S.M.A.R.T.E.S.T. goals (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic, inscribed in Time, Elastic, anchored in Sensation and Trustworthy – Reliable, therefore reproducible), and in the short term by outlining weekly plans and daily routines. This unique, meticulous and progressive approach to planning includes the identification of obstacles to your training, an essential step in anticipating your potential challenges and preparing solutions in advance 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.


Who can benefit from this training?

To performers and dance artists, as well as all other professional “movers”.
