About my classes:
The versatility of my career influences my teaching. My classes contain different elements – Modern/Contemporary/ Tanztheater (Folkwang Jooss Leeder Technique/ Limón / Graham, Release, etc.) , as well as somatic approaches. I also teach Pilates and Music / Body workshops. The main elements of my dance classes for example are: mobilizing of the spine, “off balance“- moving, discovering the threshold of lightness and strength, the dialogue between the body and its environment through biomechanical principles and assessing the essential connection between body and affects. Lately, I have been working on creating “movement for music” and “music for movement”, live in the classroom with small electronic analog /digital instruments. A theme explored and developed with my Master thesis on sonic environments.
In the words of the Brazilian pedagogue Paulo Freire, transmitting knowledge is not just the transferal of information but the enabling of cognition. (Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of Freedom). A principle which I share in my classes.
