(TEENS & ADULTS, 13+)
Still didn’t get enough summer fun? In the Art
Scouts Compressed class we squeeze most of

Drawing (or have prior drawing experience) we

This class will not only introduce young girls to
the dances listed, but they will also learn about
the countries and cultures associated with them
and the history that the dances share. They will
learn muscle isolation and hip control through
traditional belly dance (Egypt, Turkey, and others),
and rock out to the fun beats of Bollywood. In
Flamenco (Spain), girls will develop good posture
and grace through beautiful arm and hand
movements, and they will learn to make music
with their hands (palmas) and feet (zapateado). In
addition to physical exercise benefits, this class
will build motor coordination, body awareness
and self-esteem in a fun environment. They will
learn choreographed dances, and they will have an
opportunity to perform at a recital for family and
friends on the last day of camp.

The Feldenkrais Method questions conventional
belief about what it means to be fit. It offers an
ingenious way to repair and enrich your ability to
move via the plasticity of your brain. All activity
is done with relative ease while lying on the floor,
targeting key areas of lower back, shoulders, spine,
neck, pelvis, eyes, feet and jaw. Meant for people
who challenge themselves athletically, artistically,
professionally. This four-week session welcomes
curious beginners as well as advanced students.
Please bring a smooth blanket and wear your
favorite lounging clothes.

Coordinated breathing is as easy as poised stature
and an easy exhalation prompting a full and easy
inhalation. You will learn to improve you voice in
speaking or singing and minimize the negative
aspects of over-muscling. (Recommended previous Alexander lessons or a private lesson with
the instructor).
