What makes us different

What is Dance Science?

"Dance Science is an expanding area of research and study; it aims to investigate dance practice in its broadest sense, to explore areas such as training and performance, dancer health and safe-practice and the impact of dance on areas of health and wellbeing among other populations" (Trinity Laban Website).

“Loved the first printable”

Loved the first printable so much that I had to come back for just about everything else! Thank you for making them so beautiful 😍

“I liked your analogy of the brain”

The way you explained mental capacity  of younger vs older minds. It really stuck with me, the image of a box getting more full trying to grasp several things at once instead of applying to knowledge they had.

"I loved the tips and cues"

As I am a very “have to do” learner and visual learner being able to have those examples & demonstrations it was like a light bulb clicking on for me.
