Stretch Academy is for teachers who want to understand the inner workings of the dance specific movement they are teaching in order to prevent “gaps” from forming in their dancers’ technique.
Gaps can lead to bad habits, frustration, burn out, fatigue, pain, and risk of injury in dancers. Join Stretch Academy now to ensure you fill in and prevent future gaps from forming in your dancers’ technique.
“Including mUvmethod’s Level 1 and Level 2 curriculum into our dance program has simplified my dance conditioning tremendously while greatly improving my dancer’s technique. In fact I have seen greater improvements in 4 months of implementing the program than I have seen in 2 years with other programs I have used.”
“Since I started Stretch Academy, I feel overall improvements in my body. I had a knee operation many years ago that affected my dance career. Because of my injury I was hesitant to push my dancers when stretching. I didn’t want anyone to become overly flexible. But now with your program, I feel confident, empowered and ready to pass on this knowledge because it’s backed by science and doesn’t force dancers into positions that their bodies aren’t ready for. I am very pleased to have found mUvmethod and I cannot wait to start teaching the curriculum to all my dancers. Thank you for providing us with this incredible journey!”
