Dr. Janice Kalec, D.C.
A career in teaching preceded pursuits in medicine. Starting at the high school level and working through earlier education including middle school, upper elementary, lower elementary, kindergarten, the cycle completed itself with me as Director of The Topanga Co-Op Preschool. With the progression through that full gamut, life gave hands on clinical experience and learning in human development. Do you know the origin of the word, doctor? It is from the Latin, docere - “to teach”.
Along the way, performing as a dancer entered unexpectedly. After performing years passed, it was possible to take the dancer off the stage and not possible to take the dancer out of the woman! The dancer continued by studying and subsequently teaching Creative Movement in Chicago and later in several different locations in Southern California. A natural progression lead to training in Dance Therapy. Post graduate studies in Dance Therapy at U.C.L.A. was the lure to California.
While in Chiropractic school studies in alternative bodywork modalities along with expansion of spiritual awareness complemented the academic curriculum. To this day I continue taking and teaching academic health related as well as body- emotion- mind and spirit experiential classes and workshops.
