The class is mostly based on the principles of “flying low” and the methodology of “fighting monkey”

We start off with an energetic warm up, with elements of aerobic exercise, to strengthen the body and expand our stamina.

We move on to the construction of a choreography, which we separate in parts during the lesson. 

We try out a variety of dynamic speeds, qualities and intensities, we travel through the space and we use gravity as a tool to help us slide, tumble, engage with the ground and move around the space. 



The class is based on the principles of the Russian system (Bogoeva/Vaganova). We start off with a light warm-up away from the bars, with aerobic and anaerobic exercises, within the classical forms of ballet. We move on to detailed bar exercises and basic movements and postures in the center. This approach stems from the viewpoint and needs of a contemporary ballet dancer. 

All the classes are open level
