In this episode of the Acrobatic Arts Podcast, Liza Kovacs discusses the question “How much training is too much?” Liza considers herself a dance nerd and is interested in learning mechanisms, knowledge building and pedagogical practices in dance, as well as in the application of periodization concepts in classical training.
Since graduating from the National Ballet School of Canada, Liza Kovacs has danced with the National Ballet of Canada, Lalala Human Steps and the BJM as well as collaborating on numerous projects with some of Canada's finest contemporary choreographers.
Her passion for dance has led her to a Masters of Arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal and a Masters in Dance Science from Trinity-Laban in London. Since then she has studied kinesthetic anatomy and neuromuscular re-education with Irene Dowd, as well as in physiology, biomechanics, performance psychology, somatic studies and Laban movement analysis.
Liza is certified in all levels with ABT's Training Curriculum and is also a certified Pilates instructor and a registered somatic instructor. She joined the teaching team in classical dance of the National Superior Pole of Dance Rosella Hightower in 2019 while developing an online goal setting practice to help aspiring dancers reach their potential, wherever they are.
