CLASS

Happy feet, is a technical class. I start with exercises for extension in all directions at the same time. In our own way of motion, we travel through three different stages: stopping, moving and dancing. Once the body and the mind are warmed up and we are aware of our movement, we continue with an exploration of speed, dynamics and our own limitations. We research and develop our own way of dancing; we seek pleasure, not only in easy, but also in difficult movements; we strengthen the body, research personal and joint space. The technique goes hand in hand with performance.
