Stretching and Strengthening for Puppeteers
Time & Location
About The Event
Have you had the experience of wanting for more flexibility and stamina while performing puppets? Gaining general awareness about anatomy and learning about stretches that could help stretch and strengthen body parts that puppeteers use frequently!
Our instructor, Jen Cheng, is an experienced rehab fitness specialist, who has recently ventured into the world of performing in our puppet slam. She has an understanding of the (sometimes) awkward positions we put our bodies in to make the puppets look good, and has a few things to share!
So join us for a Zoom session, where we learn about different exercises together. Bring your questions!
(If you cannot be there, feel free to sign up normally, and indicate that you'll need a recording afterwards.)
