The 5 Week Artistry Master Class Overview

The Master Classes will run over five weeks, from the 20th August until the 17th of September 2020. The syllabus will be delivered via Funtastic Gymnastics’ Zoom sessions AND backed up with access to additional bonus class work via a “video-on-demand” set up on The Parallel Universe’s online platform.

The 5-week Master Class curriculum will consist of a 30 minute movement session followed by 15 minutes of theory and explanation including activities in the following topic areas:

Week 1: Posture – Body Alignment
Week 2: Posture – Core muscle awareness
Week 3: Rotation of Legs – Turn out, Leg alignment and Leg tension
Week 4: Feet – Foot tension, extension and articulation
Week 5: Arms – Correct Arm and Hand placement

Any student questions/queries will be responded to either during Zoom sessions OR via the email address of the participant’s responsible grown-up. This will be the perfect way to stay up to date with the curriculum as well as to stay connected with other classmates.
