Contemporary Dance technique. Self style.
«At the present moment I am not trying to stick to any particular style or genre. Now I am more interested in the development of a movement, where it comes from (its essence) and what it turns into. The syllabus of the class I am offering is a result of my studying different dance techniques and my work experience, my collaborating with various choreographers. The class is of intermediate level of technique, for experienced/professional dancers. It focuses mostly on the connection of a movement with space, breathing, music and most importantly the inner rhythm of a dancer».
