Class description 

“While teaching, I enjoy the process – the development of a person, mind, and body. I want to be a part of that process: observe it, guide it, and help it. I enjoy to discover new things together with the dancers, to make them think positively and objectively about themselves, their bodies and technique, and to be able to have fun and enjoy dancing. I like to create a comfortable and easy-going atmosphere where people feel free and safe to try new things and make mistakes in order to move forward and grow as a professional dancer. For me, it is important that class is not only a tool for dancers to get warm for rehearsals and shows, but also to make class an enjoyable and challenging process.
