Class Description

The class connects between creativity and structured exercises/tasks in the dancer’s work. It is based upon my experience with Ohad Naharin’s method and many other ideas, concepts, exercises from my education, personal life and career and philosophy as well.

“During the class, I speak constantly. Structured exercises, clear instructions for improvisation, and stamina exercises for coordination and strengthening . The class has no official break. The challenge of the class is to be in a constant state of body and mind connection, to elaborate our own abilities and to be available for multi tasking.“
