P.B.T. at PEDC!

Exciting News! Miss Karrie-Ann and Miss Laeticia are now certified in P.B.T. (Progressing Ballet Technique). This innovative conditioning program is designed to enhance classical ballet technique.

Because dancing is an athletic pursuit with great strength, power, coordination, endurance, and flexibility demands on the body, conditioning classes are very important for dancers. The physical requirements of this artistic sport are significant. A dancer needs to build strength, coordination and flexibility beyond what (s)he naturally has. By engaging in a properly designed conditioning training program, dancers will progress at a faster pace and be able to handle the demands of dancing longer, and with far less vulnerability to injury.

We are excited to announce that we will be offering certified P.B.T. classes in the 2019-2020 Dance Season!

A note from Sandy to all PEDC families:

Thank you for inviting me to take your dance photos.   Please remember that this link above is a proofing gallery and ordering only. After your order is placed, each photo is individually enhanced and adjusted, including areas such as exposure, colour, heavy shadows and backdrop flaws.  Due to a business season and accepting this club I have online ordering only at this time…if you need to make an appointment or order online please email me at sandylockhartphotography@gmail.com and we can make arrangements.  Find your team folder then find your dancer.  When you right click on the photo the prices should pop up, where you can add to your shopping cart.   You can also click on your favorites to keep track of your photos.

IMPORTANT:  ONLINE galleries are convenient and awesome to share images quickly, and I am flattered when people get excited about their photos I have captured. I ask that my clients refrain from “borrowing” proofs to post online.

Proofs are meant for private viewing and ordering only — thank you for your co-operation!   They are unedited in the gallery but will work my magic when orders are placed and pre-paid.

The order form is missing some new options for products (such as wallet magnets, etc.)

There are discounts for orders over $250. Ask for more details.

If you order your photos within the first 15 days of being available, you will receive extra goodies for FREE!

If at any time you need assistance with the shopping process, please write out the image number or favourite the images you wish to order. Then, you may come in during ordering days and I will help your place your order.

You may also browse the photos online and place your order via submitting the paper order form that you picked up on Picture Day. I would encourage you to click on the previews on the items you are ordering and read carefully to determine what the products are, the number of photos you may choose, and what information is requested for each item. This will speed up the processing time for your order.

Payment may be made by mail, cash, etransfer, or by PayPal at sandylockhartphotography@gmail.com   (sorry no credit cards unless you do them through paypal)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me! Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Flexibility Training Now Offered

Pure Energy Dance Co. offers Certified Training in Flexibilty

Do you want to learn how to safely and effectively stretch? Do you want to increase flexibility and mobility in your body?

Miss Karrie-Ann has received her Certification for Training in Alixa Flexibility Module 1 & 2!
Karrie-Ann Puderak offers Flexibility Training to groups and individuals. If you are interested in learning how to safely and effectively stretch for improved flexibility and performance, email pureenergy@sasktel.net. There are discounted rates for groups and multiple one on one sessions. Please specify if you are an individual or a group requesting training.
The Flexibility exercises from the Aliza flexibility Modules are a unique blend of non – invasive stretching techniques from studies of Russian and Chinese techniques, sports physical therapists, circus, Pilate’s, sports doctors, flexibility studies, and through working with thousands of athletes from various sports.
Individuals who practice the stretches daily will see results in their flexibility and mobility, and will be least likely to injure themselves.

Why do we need to stretch using the techniques from Alixa Flexibility?

The general population is remarkably inflexible in the hips due to an increase in sitting which is so prevalent and problematic today. In dancers and athletes, we are frequently seeing inflexibilty of the hips along with a noticeable disconnect between the hips and hamstrings. This is why there are so many injuries. The stretching exercises taught in the Alixa Flexibility Modules emphasize stretching through proper alignment and proper connection through the back, hips and hamstrings. This leads to an increase in flexibility which will help prevent injuries and will result in a lifetime of benefits such as not getting arthritis and lack of mobility as we age.

AERIAL ARTS CLASSES OFFERED AT PEDC!

AERIAL DANCE:

Aerial dance is a total body workout, utilizing great strength, balance, agility, and flexibility across the entire body. Since grips are done with both the upper and lower body, an aerial dance performer must be well-conditioned all over, with emphasis on an exceptionally strong core. In aerial dance performances aerialists do not utilize safety lines, so they must rely on their own strength and skill to ensure they do not fall. Instructors Karrie-Ann Puderak and Dallas Schneider are trained in Trapeze and Silks and are qualified to teach Aerial Arts.

TRAPEZE:

Trapeze is a component of Aerial Arts. Aerial trapeze is probably the most popular aerial dance apparatus used. It consists of a bar hanging from the ceiling by two ropes. The Trapeze bar used is static (not a swing apparatus) and can also rotate with the use of a swivel. Trapeze tricks performed involve various hangs using the feet, legs, arms, or any combination thereof, with duo tricks involving some sort of support of the second aerialist.

SILKS:

Aerial silks (also known as aerial tissu) is the use of fabrics hanging from the ceiling as a performance apparatus. Aerial silks tricks are usually divided into three main categories: climbs, wraps, and drops. A climb being when a performer ascends up the fabric, a wrap when a performer wraps their body (or portions of their body) within the fabric, and a drop being when a performer descends down the fabric.
