Class Description: This contemporary class demands a lot of energy and physicality. Influences are found from different dance techniques as well as from martial arts. Many acrobatics and hand stands will be found but without being the main goal of the class. The floor work is of great importance but we will also fearlessly move into space "off floor", exploring new or at least unfamiliar movement patterns.

The basic aim of my class is to make dancers reach their limits, express themselves and dance without fear and hesitation, using their physicality and full energy.
