The dancing minds workshop for dancers was born from the work of dance psychologist Sean Connolly who has been teaching his methods to many of the top dancers and teachers in the world for the past 16 yrs.
After 30 years in musculo-skeletal therapies designed for maintaining physical health Sean began his studies in the field of psychology after observing those who were at their peak in physical preparation and following a sound nutritional plan, breaking down mentally on the day of competition.
Many great dancers who have been practicing for over 10 yrs still suffer irrational fear or anxiety, becoming sick, forgetting their steps and loosing balance/timing.
The dancingminds workshop includes dancing and exercise so that progression can be assessed on the day.
