Foundational Footwork with Deborah Lessen

The intrinsic muscles of the feet can become weak from poor posture and poor shoe choices. Exercising the feet strengthens the intrinsic muscles and provides feedback through the lower limb to the pelvis and spine.
Based on work taught to Deborah by Carola Trier, we will warm up the feet and then focus on footwork and leg alignment within the standard repertoire.
