World Dance Movement builds connections between dance and diverse cultures that inspire and transform dancers around the world. Our focus is to present dancers with an opportunity to receive one-on-one training and attention in a noncompetitive atmosphere. The curriculum challenges dancers of all levels through a comprehensive study-vacation model.
Michèle also teaches Active Isolated Flexibility & Strength classes as well. AI reduces your workload by removing tightness so you can swing your limbs more freely. It transports oxygen to sore muscles and quickly removes toxins from muscles, so recovery is faster. AI works as a deep massage technique because it activates muscle fibers during stretching. The class starts with unlocking the hip and trunk area, the feet, ankles and calves and then we move to the upper body. This class is for any level of dancer or athlete, as well as anyone recovering from injuries or interested in preventing injuries.
Michèle is available for Small Group Live classes & 1:1 private coaching classes.
