Class Description

Ballet for Dancers:

In my ballet class we will do one thing, and one thing only: MOVE! Through exciting combinations, the aim will be to focus on technique, musicality, foot work and a gorgeous upper body. The secret is to stay curious! This class is suitable for classical and contemporary dancers.

Contemporary for Dancers:

The main aim of this improvisation class is to explore an extemporaneous composition in an artistic and physical context.
We will focus on paths that lead to detachment from form, focusing on seeking physical and emotional sensations.
During the class we will create a space free of judgment where we will play with different tasks and concepts, always keeping an open dialogue between body, mind and heart.
