1 CI Training ( Conditioning with Imagery) By: Melissa Accardo & Cassandra Carpino

2 History and Development A body system which incorporates both conditioning exercises for muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as visualization and imagery work for neuromuscular re-patterning (or movement re- education), alignment work, and mind-body integration and connectedness. The founder of CI training is Donna Krasnow.

3 About Donna She is a dance professor at York University she teaches modern and studies limon technique. In June 2002 she received the University-wide York University Excellence in Teaching Award. Donna Krasnow specializes in, injury prevention, conditioning for dancers, and motor learning and motor control.

6 Purpose & Benefits of CI Training The balance of muscular strength and flexibility within individual muscle groups. Imagery is often employed in dance training to influence movement quality, execution, dynamic range and artistic expression. To improve neuromuscular patterning.

7 Continued…  Addresses problems with transfer of training from conditioning and re- alignment methods to movement practices in classes, rehearsals, performances and daily life. C-I Training can be applied to a wide range of dance forms, and is useful to dancers of various ages (as young as 10 years old) and all levels, beginner to professional.

8 What is lacking In The Training of Dancers?  A usual dance class often does not focus on strengthening or enhancing quality of movement. Somatic practices, also known as body therapies or body work, addresses muscular/structural alterations.  Dance classes most of the time, do not work every muscle group, where as CI Training engages different movements for specific muscle groups.  A usual dance class often does not focus on strengthening or enhancing quality of movement.
