Phoebe Higgins Mini Magic Circle
About the Event
Phoebe will present a hands-on movement workshop and mat class with the Mini Circle. This modern apparatus is designed by the late Bob Liekens based on the tens-o-meter that Joe designed and used in his studio. This useful tool is great for alignment and many other specific uses. Every participant will receive a Mini to take home and extras will be available for discounted purchase.
About the teacher
Phoebe Higgins attended ballet classes taught by Romana Kryzanowska in 1967 -68 and was reintroduced to Romana in 1976 at SUNY Purchase where she began studying the Pilates Method to help strengthen a spine weakened by scoliosis. In 1980 Phoebe went to work at the Pilates Studio under Romana’s guidance. When that studio closed in 1989 she began work with Dr. Howard Sichel in his chiropractic office. That work evolved into Power Pilates. In 1998 and 2005 respectfully, Phoebe was asked by the School of American Ballet and Ballet Academy East to organize a programs for their teenage professionally geared students. The success of these programs is evident in the infrequency of injuries and dancers’ continued strength. 2006, Phoebe left Power Pilates and became a freelancer for both individual sessions and workshops. Phoebe would like to see everyone taking sessions and making the world a better place through the freedom of the body.
