Meaningful Movements

SQ_01

Every dance has a rhythm, every rhythm has a movement, and every movement has a purpose. Rhythm, movement and purpose are interconnected. Dance allows for cultural expression. Exercise may be beneficial but it is seldom meaningful. The interconnectedness in sitdance becomes a motivation for participation. Click here to read more.

 

Expect 100% Participation

SQ_02

In the DVDs I say "I will do the dances as good as I can", and "I will be giving my 100%". In return I expect participants to do it as good as they can, and give their 100% no matter how little that may be. This means that I encourage and challenge them, but at the same time I accept any form or level of participation. Click here for more.

Creative Adaptations

SQ_03

The DVDs attempt to suit as many participants as possible, but one size never fits all. Each participant brings along a unique set of conditions. Ignore such condition and he or she will use the condition as an excuse to not participate. But, meet a participant's needs by developing a creative adaptation of a dance and or she will feel validated and empowered to participate. Click here for more.
