After spending her childhood dancing, Donna Flagg went on to study at Philadelphia's University of the Arts and graduate with highest honors from Rutgers University with a degree in Dance. Later, Donna earned two Masters Degrees in Education from New York University, also finishing at the top of her class.

Influenced by her training in classical ballet, jazz, modern and musical theater, Donna created Lastics Stretch Technique, a method designed to help people improve their flexibility. Her stretch classes have been taught at Joffrey Ballet School in New York, Joffrey Academy of Dance in Chicago, Alvin Ailey, Broadway Dance Center, Peridance Center, Dance Teachers Association of New Jersey, BroadwayCon, New Jersey Dance Center and The New York Health and Racquet Club. In addition, Donna is a featured guest every year at Cal-a-Vie Health Spa in San Diego, California.

Class description:
Lastics is a stretching technique born from the world of dance that was designed to improve flexibility based on techniques dancers use to stay lean and limber. Unlike methods that rely on external force to push a stretch, Lastics trains you to articulate your body in ways that elongate your muscles from the inside. Not only will it change the way you think about, and understand, your body, you will also increase your flexibility and improve body awareness through a special mind/muscle connection. You'll move, perform and feel better with muscles that are longer, stronger, more supple and healthy from the inside-out and end-to-end!
