Lynn Simonson created this technique more than 35 years ago when she began teaching individuals with previous injuries and/or alignment problems. The development of the technique came through anatomically studying the limitations and possibilities of each student\\\'s body. In Simonson Technique, dancers work within their natural turnout line without forcing their range of joint motion or hyper-extending their knees. Lynn\\\'s goal was to create an intelligent and logical way to prepare the body for dance without injury.
