Introducing a new member of The Commonty - Sara Lockwood has been teaching Contemporary Dance in D&G for 7 years
Courses in New Galloway, Rhonehouse, Dumfries and Dalbeattie - these include:
"CHILDRENS GRADES AND YOUTH DANCE" age 7-9 age 10+ These dance exercises are designed to improve posture, breathing, flexibility, balance, agility, co-ordination, strength and concentration. The Children's Grades combined with free expression and composition help the individual to develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. These classes encourage a creative mind alongside a broad movement vocabulary
“ADULT DANCE COLOURS & CHOREOGRAPHY” Dance for fun and fitness while you develop a sound dance vocabulary,increase flexibility,spinal mobility,strength and stamina using travelling steps, elevation and balance. The basic introduction of co-ordinated breathing and movement provides an extra quality to the dance exercises and an enhanced sense of well being. We explore variations on the dance colour exercises -beginning with a simple movement- a walk, travelling step, a jump ,a turn - we interpret using a variety of music genres and moods and develop this into a piece of movement choreography. Each class concludes with a relaxation.
Sara is the Scottish Rep. of International Association of Margaret Morris Movement
