This Fall, the Asheville Arts Center has the performing arts “dream team” teaching their different music, drama & dance classes.    One key ingredient to this amazing team is Monique Rundell!

Monique LARGEMonique taught several of our dance camps this past summer and will be teaching many of our ballet classes this Fall, as well as other types of dance.  She has a tremendous amount of teaching experience and is already a well-loved instructor to the students who have worked with her.  Here’s her bio:

“Monique’s love for dance, art and music has been an integral part of her life since she was a little girl. She studied ballet, tap, jazz and gymnastics throughout her childhood and then went on to get a B.S. in Kinesiology at Indiana University with a performance emphasis and attended the Laban Bartenieff Institute of Movement Analysis and Notation in NYC.

She has a holistic approach to dance and feels that learning technique, structure and creative movement benefits children and adults throughout their lifetime.”

We are very excited about the ballet program at the Asheville Arts Center this Fall!   Monique’s unique approach, using her knowledge of Kenesiology, offers students the opportunity to grow into well-rounded, smart ballet dancers.

A little more on Kenesiology, from our friends at Wikiepedia:

Kinesiology, derived from the Greek words kinesis (movement) and kinein (to move), also known as human kinetics, is the science of human movement. It is a discipline that focuses on Physical Activity. A kinesiological approach applies scientific based medical principles towards the analysis, preservation and enhancement of human movement in all settings and populations. Kinesiologists work in research, the fitness industry, clinically, and in industrial environments. Studies on human motion may be supported by computer vision, using stereo camera systems for pose recognition and motion modeling.  It is not to be confused with applied kinesiology, a controversial alternative medicine technique related to chiropractic techniques.”
