The Best You That You Can Be: Mind and Attention Strategies to Free Your Power and Precision
A Focus on the Professional Dancer
November 9, 2021, at 11am EST / 4pm GMT
Join us for the 5th and final webinar in the open access, educational series ‘Bridging IADMS’ led by attention and focus in dance specialist, Clare Guss-West MA. This webinar for professional dancers is kindly hosted by Finnish National Ballet and we are joined by artistic director, Madeleine Onne, colleagues Jani Talo, Johanna Osmala, and Laura Nuutinen, and company dancers.
We all want to do and be our best, but often our best efforts do not lead us to our optimal dancing best. Frequently, more effort, more practice, more information lead to a movement plateau or worse a dysfunction. More is simply not more! So how much is "optimal"? In the webinar, we’ll explore complimentary attentional tools and mental tips that can offer a renewed ease and economy of movement and energy to enhance your physical performance. We’ll look at the effects of our own disabling self-talk and self-cueing on our performance. And we will practice simple techniques to filter and channel our attention to support increased power, precision, and speed for finding the optimal balance of minimal effort for maximum stamina.
