SPOKANE February 17 12:00pm – Bellyfest Happy Feet Will Travel West Central Community Center 1603 N. Belt St. Spokane, WA 99205 In this class, participants will focus on the feet and legs, which carry us so diligently through dance! In part one, Nefabit will break down some of her favorite exercises and combinations designed to incorporate graceful leg extensions and eye-catching steps into your dance repertoire. Whether dancing in a small space or on a large stage, dancers can create dynamic travelling patterns and graceful turn sequences. Students will drill simple and complex foot patterns designed to travel in multiple directions, all while exploring unique floor pathways to get you around the stage.
In part two, the class will focus on caring for and protecting the feet and joints. Participants will discuss strengthening and flexibility exercises, avoiding common injuries, pros and cons of different shoes, and ways to keep your feet happy and healthy. (Many dancers prefer to dance barefoot, but this can lead to injuries and infection, which Nefabit has experienced firsthand, as well as torque and repetitive stress injuries.) PLEASE BRING (if you have) – a resistance band, a yoga mat or towel, and any dance shoes you use.
