The research was an interdisciplinary work, combining classical ballet and Ideokinesis, a centring movement technique. The scholarship allowed me to execute the research in an ideal environment, a professional ballet school, and see the results of this cocktail of training on the dancer's body and personality.
The implications of the research on a personal level have led me to change the way I teach and learn dance. On a more universal level, since 1995, when my research began, professional dancers and musicians have been offered a complimentary movement technique, such as Alexander, to enhance their performance and minimize injury levels. Thus, the core idea of my original research has been achieved.
