 Gain greater awareness of your physical body when you are in action. Delve into the anatomical structures of your body for stretching, strengthening, and elevating your exercise to more mindful movement. 

Learn where key muscles are located in your body, how those muscles provide motion – and sometimes stiffness! We will connect our learning to yoga, dance, and bodywork. Wear comfortable clothing — the workshop includes stretching and light strengthening exercises to activate the muscles you are learning about. 

Part One focuses on muscles of the core and lower body. Part Two focuses on the upper body and revisits the core as the connection between upper and lower body. Join us for Part One, Part Two or both!


Elizabeth Lentz-Hill

Elizabeth’s students love the joy, humor and freedom of expression in her classes. Her classes inspire students to think about dance and life in new, exciting ways.

Elizabeth grew up in Hawaiʻi and is happy to be home, dancing in the place she loves, after more than twenty years of experience performing, teaching, choreographing and promoting dance. She has toured France, Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S. with Tennessee Dance Theatre, Chicago Moving Company, Lucky Plush Productions, and Breakbone DanceCo., and performed works by Bill T. Jones, Doug Elkins, Twyla Tharp, and Charles Weidman.

Prior to returning to Hawaiʻi in 2018, Elizabeth co-founded two dance companies and two regional dance festivals on the continent, one to promote modern dance in Chicago and one for 7-12th grade dancers and their dance educators in Mississippi. She served as an Associate Professor of Dance at the University of Southern Mississippi (USM), where she taught ballet, modern, dance education, anatomy, choreography, and dance theory classes. While at USM, Elizabeth worked to bridge the Dance and Theatre Departments, including co-creating a full-length devised theatre work with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and serving as Interim Chair for both departments. She holds a BA in Religion with a concentration in Women’s Studies from Carleton College, and an MFA in Dance from the University of Washington.

“Ms. Lentz-Hill has effervescence, an inner glow, and an absolute belief in what she is presenting in the studio. There is an indefinable type of energy that leaps from her to her students. These qualities projected not only from Ms. Lentz-Hill but also from the students in the residency as they worked with her. The dancers left her sessions with knowledge of a dynamic energy, knowing they had something of value to contribute to the community around them so much greater than an ability to be a technically sound dancer. To paraphrase a student in the residency – working with Ms. Lentz-Hill was not just a lesson in technique, it was a lesson in life! “ – Mid-Pacific Institute
