I thoroughly enjoyed this course and have applied some of these concepts to my class structure. My more mature students were able to apply the concept of center of mass and ground force reaction in their allegro studies.

Everything was very clearly and adequately explained .
Also the writing during the presentation was very useful and keeps the interesting in allert.
Maybe could be present a kind of short video at the end with a dancer in movement and how the com and the ground forces are changed from time to time , as a dancer executes a series of steps. This might help the eye of a student to rapidly understand and check by visual the opposite forces (action and reaction) that a dancer should be aware of and enforces.

I've found this course very interesting and very well explained!
For me Balance is one of the most important task to learn in dance. So I do explain to my Students.
Clear and easy to follow

Answered a couple of questions I had and reminded me of pointers various teachers had made. Now to put the work into action in School!

I find it will be really useful to be able to go back to some of the videos on youtube just to review, revisit, refresh. However, I would have enjoyed a few writen notes at the end of the course, something I could go back to, as I would do with a book.
Congrats for your online pedagogycal project. I wish you all the best and I hope I find some time to join again not too far!

As a teacher, the course gave me a better understanding of how I can help my students (and myself) achieve better and a more secure balance while moving through the floor. It takes practice, but knowing the role/law of physics in balance will help dancers progress faster.
by JoAnne Suckow
The material in this course provides valuable insight into the concepts which take the trial and error out of balance technique in dance. The dancer gains scientifically based understanding of how to work with the body and forces which act on it in dance.
Balance and biomechanics
by Anna Schrefl
Very clearly and comprehensive explained. some repetitions in it. It would have been great to hear more about the torque motion (or maybe in the biomechanics basics).

This course really makes balance "real" as in it it is not just a talent- it is actually pure physics. It gave me so many ideas for teaching and dancing and had taken alot of myths away from the whole balance thing!
