Hello Fellow Community Dancers,
The Dance Post is wanting to plan a session of Mitzvah classes taught by Kana Nemoto (certified instructor) for the middle of May-mid June. We are wondering how many people would commit to a 4 week long session of classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings,9:30am-11am. We would likely start May 19th and go until June 11th.
If there are 7-12 people interested, we will go ahead and offer the session, and participants would then pay fixed amount of $60 for the whole session.
If you are interested, please send us a separate email to [email protected], confirming your desire to participate.

The Mitzvah Technique and Itsuch Method
The Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method is a new approach to learn movement and function of the body. Focusing on the alignment and mechanics of the body, we learn to release unnecessary tension and find efficient movement with minimum effort. Concentrating on fundamental movements by learning exercises on the floor and using a chair we allow the body to return to its ideal movement, function and freedom to expand movement possibility.
Specific benefits for dancers are
• Learn exercises that help open and release unnecessary tension in the joints and muscles
• Bring more awareness of your own body and movement
• Find a better relationship with the floor so that you can feel and understand the forces acting in your body
• Return to an optimal postural alignment that will prolong your health and prevent pain and injuries
