Five Point Dancer
Five Point Dancer Theory
Headed by one of our own faculty members, Andrea Basile, this program will help your dancer learn how to self evaluate and take action in order to fulfill their dreams. We talk in depth about all Five Points including: Mind Set, Work Ethic, Injury Prevention, Cross Training, and Nutrition. Dancers come together to hold each other accountable and gain momentum towards reaching their goals. Five Point Dancer talks and seminars are incorporated throughout the year.
Five Point Dancer Clinic
Magnify has teamed up with the most experienced "dance" Physical Therapist of Albuquerque, Melody Krech, of Bear Canyon Therapy. Melody has over 30 years of knowledge and experience to share with us regarding dancers and how to care for their bodies. We host these clinics several times per quarter to ask questions posed by dancers and staff regarding injury prevention, injuries, and on-going care. We can't thank Melody enough for offering Magnify and our students this amazing opportunity!
"Sister Schools" with Marin Dance Theatre
One of our dear collaborators, Lynn Cox, director of Marin Dance Theatre, continues to guide and mentor dancers through their journey. It's important for Magnify to maintain these relationships in order to grow and cultivate a community in which dancers can thrive. We connect with MDT in many ways, including opportunities for our dancers to travel to CA for Summer Intensives, Workshops, and Performances. It's essential for dancers to feel a part of something larger than themselves, which in turn fosters life-long friendships through dance.
