May 28, 2014

Michelle PotterfQ: How do I get the most out of the Dance program at NYFA?

MP: While you are a student in the Dance program at New York Film Academy, make sure you take advantage of all the classes that you are scheduled to attend each semester. Too many absences will take a toll on your technique advancement. While you are in class, give 100% focus and energy. Make sure you take in all of the information your teachers give you and work hard to apply it in your daily work.

Q: I am 18 years old, is it too late to become more flexible?

MP: Absolutely not, but you need to be diligent about working your stretch every day. Begin slowly and push yourself as your muscles loosen up. Stretching too much, too soon can be painful and potentially harmful. Hold the stretch, and once you feel your muscles reaching their limit, hold the position for a few counts then push yourself a little further and hold again. When stretching, do not bounce. Hold the stretch instead and feel a constant pull in the muscles.

Q: As a dancer, what types of food should I eat?

MP: Dancers eat just about anything. They do not all survive on carrot sticks and celery. Dancers must eat a good balanced diet that provides plenty of oomph in order to maintain the level of energy needed to exert their bodies during demanding physical rehearsals and performances. Some smart snacks include nuts, fruit, peanut butter, trail mix, veggies, hummus, and yogurt. Avoid drinks and snack with added sugar.
