GYROKINESIS® 4-week workshop with Roseann Baker, hosted by SF Performing Arts PT

January 28, February 4, 11 + 18
Sundays at 10:30am-12:30pm
Hybrid class taught at SF Performing Arts PT & Live on Zoom


These workshops aim to help create awareness within the body using the movement vocabulary of the GYROKINESIS® Method. The GYROKINESIS® class takes place seated, on the floor and standing in order to apply the concepts in different relationships to gravity. The class aims to nurture the skill of sensing and listening to your body through imagery and body mapping while learning basic anatomy and biomechanics.


This class is also a form of injury prevention. Knowing your body offers freedom and ease of movement. It creates deep strength and internal connections producing an optimal environment for artistic expression. 


Learn how to use your body to work with you rather than against you. 

How to work smarter, not harder.

We attended the 32nd annual International Association for Dance Medicine and Science (IADMS) Conference!

October 2022 in Limerick, Ireland

Overall, Pointe Safe was a big hit with the IADMS Dance Medicine community!

We were in Limerick, Ireland representing Pointe Safe at the IADMS 32nd annual Dance Medicine conference. It was a blast to join in on the first IADMS conference since the 2020 pandemic even though Kendall had COVID and was stuck attending virtual events from her hotel room.

Paper Trails is a dynamic exploration of the unique communication pathways adopted by immigrants on Angel Island in the early 20th century. This new dance work features a range of movement drawn from imagination and personal stories, as well as inspiration from Erin Yen’s mixed-race lineage.  Artists Lucia Flexer-Marshall, Abigail Hinson and Sawako Ogo share the stage to research how communities may be built through fragmented interactions. The records have burned. A new history may form and we can write it, one secret message at a time.

We are in Pointe Magazine (again!)

Check out their article on rethinking common corrections and see what Kendall has to say!“Really think about the correction, and try to consider if it’s for you,” says Alway. “If something makes you move more slowly, makes it harder for you to move, makes something hurt, those are all signs that you are doing something incorrectly. A correction should make you feel lighter, faster, and should make the movement easier. If a teacher is insistent about a correction that doesn’t pass those tests, think about how you can follow the spirit of it without applying the action of it as much.”


We are featured in Pointe Magazine!

April, 2021 Kendall shared "3 Exercises for More Coordinated Pirouettes" with Pointe Magazine! These can be great additions to your toolbox, and we hope you have as much fun doing the exercises as it was to shoot them.
