Integrated Dance Preparation

6 Weeks | 5 Sessions per week | 34 Videos | Int/Adv


This 6-week program is designed for students who wish to prepare physically, technically, and mentally for Ashley Lopez's Integrated Dance Part 1 Intensive.

Created by Ashley Lopez, a certified yoga, Pilates, and group fitness instructor with over a decade of experience teaching in over 20 countries internationally, Integrated Dance is the result of over 14 years of study, practice and research. Learn more about Ashley's comprehensive training and teacher certification intensive here.

Ashley designed the Integrated Dance Preparation program on Datura Online to prepare her students interested in taking the Integrated Dance Intensive, as well as for those dancers looking to hone their technique and build body strength and flexibility.

The program begins with basic belly dance technique, basic yoga, and basic Pilates. The weeks quickly progress, offering students more challenging cross-training sessions in addition to more advanced dance technique and dance combinations.

Each session is approximately one hour in length, and each week includes 5 sessions, giving students the opportunity to take two recovery days per week.

Students enrolled in the Integrated Dance program should pay special attention to cueing techniques, sequencing of exercises, and the pace and flow of each class. Get ready to work out, dance a lot, learn a bit, and smile!

For this program, you'll need a water bottle, yoga mat, and yoga blocks.
