Susie Higgins and & Astrid Sherman  have been invited by Healthy Dancer Canada  to present a workshop on some of the myths of dance posture and control. Their presentation is backed by Susie’s vast practical knowledge from her physiotherapy and pilates  background and Astrid’s experience teaching advanced pre-professional  students for over 15 years. Their combined experience and knowledge has been pooled together to work with students on recognising and correcting postural faults. With an ongoing collaboration, Susie and Astrid confer weekly on student’s needs as growth patterns or poor muscle recruitment habits are noticed. Postural corrections given in ballet class, that are reinforced with pilates, have shown great results!
