Private dance work is designed to fit the specific needs of children. Some of the reasons that children study privately with DWYHS are:
1. To help a child “catch up” with their ballet peer group and strengthen their understanding of correct ballet placement, alignment, and technique so they can be placed in a proper class for their age group.
2. To get a child “ready” for an audition.
3. To address special needs of children who require strengthening in certain muscle groups; to correct feet that turn inward severely (pigeon toe); to help correct a child’s gait; to aide a child in feeling more physically self-confident; and to bring a child a heightened awareness of their body in space. This work also helps a child feel “more at home,” more graceful, and more in control of their body. Children who are nonverbal have found great joy, creative self-expression, and fun through one-on-one movement work.
How does this work differ from physical therapy? DWYHS's unique background as a choreographer, dancer, transformative movement specialist and intuitive helps make DWYHS work with children very focused, fun, playful, and highly creative. It believes that a “spoonful of creative sugar” helps the medicine go down even in the most challenging of situations. There is a profound connection between the body, mind, spirit, and emotions. DWYHS'S deepest desire is to help integrate these aspects so a child experiences greater harmony within her or his body uncovering a life-enriching natural spontaneity. It is DWYHS's passion to support every child to their fullest potential. #dwyhstip #dwyh #enpointe #enpointeclassicalballet #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscodancer #sfballetdancer #dance #worldofdance #eveythingdance #practice #motivate #youthSF #inspiresf #keeppushing #toepads #blisters #dedication #ilovepointe #dancewithyourheartstudios #sfdanceclasses #privateballetlesson @dancewithyourheartstudios
