Join Brent Anderson and Kim Gibilisco this summer for the first Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program within a university.

Also, join Brent and Kim in extending a sincere thank you to Dean George Stauffer, Associate Dean Lisa Baratta, Chair Julia Ritter and Director of the Extension Division, Christopher Kenniff. It was with their hard work, team effort, many hours of assistance and brainstorming that this project has come to life.

The Polestar Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program is only available to the Department of Dance BFA, BA and EdM students, staff and faculty who have successfully completed Kinesiology for Dancers.  If you have not taken Kinesiology for Dancers at MGSA, please speak to Kim Gibilisco (kgibilis@rutgers.edu, 917-647-6638) about courses that may be used to fulfill this pre-requisite.

A special discounted price is being offered to the Department of Dance.  The total cost of the program is $5,300.  This is over a $2,000 savings when compared to the Polestar Comprehensive Pilates Teacher Training Program tuition and practical studio fees in the open market.  You may register online through the
