Unlike musicians who can put their instruments away after a performance, RPM understands that dancers live within their instrument. RPM takes an informed approach to dance, using anatomical and physical knowledge of the human body in order to improve dance success. We do this by emphasizing a self-aware approach to dance. By self-aware, we mean that dancers will have an understanding of not just what their bodies should do to complete a sequence, but how their own body functions and how they can make their body move safely. Through RPM, students will learn to be conscious of their body’s natural movements and improve upon their dance techniques by working with their bodies, not against them.
