For kids 5-7 years old 

I believe in, and encourage the idea of dance being integrated in children’s activities. In those ten years of teaching, I have noticed that it helps children feel more energetic and capable of dealing with any problem that arises in the team, in the class, and later on in life. Discipline, creativity, teamwork, confidence and the correct stance of the body are some of the benefits that dancing can bring upon a child.  

My practical approach in my dance classes aims to encourage students to create, express their ideas and their feelings with their bodies and direct their attention towards what they can do, instead of what they can’t do.

In my class, which is contemporary dance with elements of improvisation, children receive the joy of dancing within a team and collaborate, while boosting their confidence. With their body as a tool and music as their companion, children learn the technique, exercise their memory in patterns and repetitive tasks and evolve, create, complete steps, and learn to present their work. They develop their compassion and, in the end, a deeper respect for humanity.
